In our earlier communications, we asked you to reach out and help spread the word about our Listen to the Music fundraising appeal for David Chapman. Our overall goal was to raise 100,000 to defray the living and medical expenses associated with Chapman's care. One of our wonderful donors offered us a challenge grant that would double all donations, dollar for dollar, if we could rise to the challenge of raising $20,000. We are so grateful to be able to tell you that thanks to you, we succeeded in our goal. The LTTM committees, staff, and musicians reached out to colleagues, friends and loved ones, and let them know why supporting David Chapman during his time of need is so important. Well on Saturday, June 9th we met the challenge grant. We raised $51,211 plus the $20,000 challenge grant for a total $71,211 raised! What an awesome display of love by you for David.
We thank all our donors for their ongoing support, and especially that special anonymous donor who made this matching grant possible. And we are also thankful to Nancy Peery Marriott who ensured that the challenge grant was met.
We have not reached our ultimate fundraising goal. So please help us to achieve our fundraising objective - make a donation online at https://www.wepay.com/donations/benefit-of-david-chapman or mail a check/money order, payable to David Chapman, to Marcie Washburn, Treasurer, Listen to the Music Fund, PO Box 1660 Beltsville, MD 20704-1660.
Every donation will count towards meeting our overall fundraising goal.
