Putting this event together takes a lot of dedication, numerous local groups supporting and helping promote, and generating the start-up funding to get it off the ground. Here’s the process:
1. FUNDING. Outreach to the local community and potential group sponsors to help with the funding needed to secure the venue, confirm speakers, and other initial costs. Our needs to get the ball rolling? $5,000. Look to the right to make a no-risk pledge right now! We guarantee tickets, group table sponsorships and other benefits for people helping in this campaign. CLICK HERE for details on all pledge benefits.
Best part? Your credit card is ONLY charged if we reach our goal of 5K. Click here to read more detail below)
2. BOOKING. Once initial funding is completed, we begin the process of confirming a venue, date and speakers. If we raise funds soon enough, we hope to schedule a date of Constitution Day, September 17th – but are certainly open to others depending on availability and timing.
3. PROMOTION. After the venue and speakers are booked and confirmed, we’ll enter the event with our ticketing agent to make available tickets to the general public – and follow through on a massive outreach and media campaign to generate the interest needed to fill the event. When we get to this point, we can certainly use your help!
4. Much more from here….TBD.
HOW THE POINT PLEDGE CAMPAIGNS WORK
How many times have you contributed to a political campaign, wondering if they’d ever be able to do the things promised with your money? This platform removes the questions, and eliminates the risk. When we all work together, we can make things happen….and better yet, when you pledge, you can be sure that no one gets one penny from you unless it’s going directly to the effort listed.
It’s no-risk. Here’s how.
Through a revolutionary platform called “The Point” (owned and operated by Groupon), you can pledge to financially support this event. But, here’s the good part. Your credit card is NOT charged one dime until we all work together to find enough people to hit the goal required.
Donating one dollar toward a one-thousand dollar goal is a waste of a dollar if you’re the only one. But if 999 others are willing, then the goal is reached and that dollar makes sense. Please pledge and share – whether you’re in the area or not, you can definitely help.
