Thank You!

Thank you so much for supporting the Coalition on May 3rd--we raised nearly $3,000! Even though the Big Payback site crashed at 9:00AM, you still showed up to support us at Chauhan Ale & Masala House and again at the ALIAS Spring Concert, we are so grateful for your patience and understanding.  Though $3,000 is a lot to raise in one day, it’s not as close to our $10,000 goal as we had hoped. Please consider giving today to help us reach our Big Payback campaign goal of $10,000. Thank You!

Give here.
