And when we were planning it out, we had to think of prizes.
We noticed that most, if not all, successful projects had “super-prizes”: prizes awarded for donations that exceeded, say, $1,000. That’s some serious money!
So we came up with our very own “super-prize.” A catchy name for it never really caught on, so we’ll just call it, “three (3) *pairs* of tickets to any three sold-out shows!!!”
That’s right: a generous tax-deductible donation of $1,500 can get you three pairs of tickets – six in total – for, say, Gillian Welch (already sold out) or Animal Collective, which sold out instantly.
Just a hunch.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. I predict at least a handful of sure-fire sell-outs that have yet to be announced.
It’s really no joke, because these shows sell out in mere seconds. It’s heart-wrenching telling people Gillian Welch is sold out. Breaks your heart. And some folks dont’ take it to well.
We only made five of these prizes available.
And as I write this, four people have splurged for this package. Wow!
