Friends of Sugar Maple,
Remember your first Sugar Maple Traditional Music Festival? The music, dancing, music, children, music, friendship. Did I mention music?
Or maybe 2016 will be your first Sugar Maple fest.
Whether you are a regular – or you’ve heard so much you can no longer stay away – we’re talking to you.
This year’s festival – the 13th annual – is less than two months away. We couldn’t be more excited about the musicians coming to Lake Farm Park on August 5th and 6th! This year’s lineup includes Devil in a Woodpile, Art Stevenson & Highwater, Aoife O’Donovan and Jay Farrar – performers you won’t see brought together on the same stage anywhere else.
Keeping the festival at Lake Farm County Park at the same ticket price and with the same stellar acts costs more each year. So we are reaching out to tell you about our fundraising campaign called “1 in 100”, where we seek 100 donations of $100 or more. We hope you will want to be a 1 in 100 and help us keep this unique event going for years to come.
We started this campaign in May and are 60 percent to our goal! That’s right, 60 percent! You can help us make that 100 percent.
Donors get perks for being 1 in 100:
· Donate $100 and receive a thank you note, an “I’m 1 in 100” sticker and 2 free beer tickets at this year’s festival.
· Donate $200 or more and get the above plus 2 weekend tickets to the festival.
And of course, you get the satisfaction that comes with helping keep this one-of-a-kind festival possible and accessible.
If you can make a larger donation, we truly thank you. We are grateful for smaller donations, too. The festival is presented by an all-volunteer organization with board members who are also financial donors and, since we are a 501.c.3 organization, all donations are tax deductible.
You can make donations on line at the Sugarmaplefest.org web site (the Donate button on the right side), or you can mail your donations to our mailing address listed below.
But to get started, let us know you are in.
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can add you to our list of donors and make sure you get the perks.
Checks can be mailed to:
FLTMC (Four Lakes Traditional Music Collective)

Thank you so much. We can’t wait to see you at the festival on August 5 and 6.
Ask your friends to donate to this great cause and bring them, too!
