Fundraising Week & Silent Auction
We have been running this year's "fun"draising at Project Basho. So far with Insiderpages.com alone, we have raised over $1200.00 We hope more people will join over this weekend to boost up the funds.
As a second wave of fundraising this year, we are scheduling a fundraising party along with a silent auction on December 7th. Photographers associated with Project Basho have donated prints and books for the occasion. We will be updating our website soon to show the donated pieces.
The silent auction party is on December 7th at 6 pm. Tickets are $20 which includes food and drinks. If you raise more than $20 with Insiderpages.com by the party, to show our gratitude, your admission will be waived.
We are working on other fundraising methods as well including a print sale of photographs by Tsuyoshi Ito. Please visit our website for more information on this year's fundraising.
