Getting the thanks they deserve.
As I announced joyfully last week, CGP has is officially a non-profit. What I failed to mention is that we took this step through the incredible support and hard work of our friends at Jackson PLLC. A HUGE thank-you (and a digital round of applause!) to Lara, Suzie, and Nathan for your contribution to our organization.
Take the (funding) initiative.
On the road, on the floor, with boots on the ground, CGP needs you now!
Our 501c3 couldn't have come at a better time. With the new venue and new developments in Control Group's activities, we need your help to take advantage of all the great stuff going on:
Share CGP with Durham, NC.
Control Group is performing at the American Dance Festival this summer (yes, we know, RIGHTEOUS!), and we need your help to get the company to Durham, NC this July! $1,500 will bring our 4-person company to Durham for a week of performances, participation at ADF, and networking opportunities for further touring.
Our new venue is bigger (and badder!), and to get it fully outfitted we need to expand our flooring. We've received a generous loan of dance flooring from Mary Lynn Lewark to help us through the next couple months. $2,000 will purchase the dance linoleum and plywood to complete the permanent installation.
