Dear Sugar Maple Traditional Music Festival Friends and Family,
As 2013 comes to an end, we here at the Four Lakes Traditional Music Collective (FLTMC) want to thank all of you for your support this past decade. Because without you, we wouldn’t exist. It is through your support – financial and volunteer based – that we are able to produce the Sugar Maple Traditional Music Festival. It is your enthusiasm and artistic spirits that drive our organization every year.
In order to offer audience members like you quality programming and continue to make the Sugar Maple Traditional Music Festival a place where the convergence of people, cultures, and ideas contribute to the future, we need your continued help and support. As we approach the year 2014, we ask you to please consider making a year-end gift to the Four Lakes Traditional Music Collective. Your contribution – of any amount – will help us continue into our 11th year of operations.
We are a 100% volunteer driven non-profit, and we could use your help to continue our mission. If you could consider making a year end festival donation (tax deductible) it would greatly help us ensure we can bring more diverse, lesser known traditional music acts to Madison in 2014. Many of you work for companies that have donation matching, and that would benefit us even more! Please consider taking advantage of these incentives to help FLTMC continue and grow.
Please visit http://sugarmaplefest.org/ and click on the Donate button in the left column to help us continue our mission of bringing diverse arts to the greater Madison community!
Wow… Year 10 has come and gone and every year just keeps getting better! We are thrilled to bring such a variety of stellar performers to the Sugar Maple stage each year and can’t wait to see what 2014 brings. Tell your friends, tell your neighbors and mark your calendars for the 11th annual Sugar Maple fest, AUG 1-2, 2014!
From the months of planning to the final clean-up, a whole lot of volunteer hours go into bringing this fine festival to Madison each year. Our sincerest THANK YOU to each and every one of you for your support!
The Four Lakes Traditional Music Collective (FLTMC) is the non-profit group who puts on the Sugar Maple fest. We’ll take August off and then jump right in to start planning for 2014. Interested in getting involved? Have comments or suggestions? Drop us a line at email@example.com. We’d love to hear your ideas!
