International Projection Festival - Public Eye SOAR is scheduled to turn on the projectors for this year's festival on Friday, Novemeber 10 and Saturday, November 11 , 2017 at 5:30 pm in Downtown Panama City, Florida.  

We need your help to make sure Public Eye SOAR is able to fly this year.  We have a little over $1200 of the $5000 needed to put on this year's festival. 

We are looking for funding for the following essential components for Soar:

Projector/Equipment Rental:  $2,000.00
Exclusive Volunteer T-shirts (One color ink):  $800.00
SOAR Awards for Artists:  $500.00
Event Insurance:  $400.00
Port-A-Potties (Handicapped & Regular):  $350.00
Overnight Security for two nights(Thurs. & Fri.):  $300.00
Ballot Printing (B & W) and paper:  $200.00
Misc Construction (extra surfaces for projection due to changes to location):  $250.00
Misc. Supplies (markers for doodlers, paper, white duct tape to outline curbs for saftey, window coverings to convert to projection surfaces, etc.):  $200.00

Our company , The Public Eye, has already donated over 150 hours of work this year to photograph artwork for local artists, photo edit those photographs and create the videos the audience will enjoy the evenings of SOAR.  These services are free to participating artists and we give the raw and edited photos of their work back to each artist at no cost to them.  We hope these services allow our local artists to market themselves and their work and find greater success.  And we do this for free.

We also plan, produce, and mount SOAR free of charge for our community because we believe in the power of art to create a community that is kinder, more beautiful and ultimately empowered to be successful.  We feel art helps us all become better citizens,  fosters greater understanding, drives the local economy and simply makes us all happier. 

We hope you will support this creative endeavor and know YOU helped create a Public Eye SOAR this year!

Thank you for your support!
