Get Abe Lincoln to Pittsburgh

Myself as a Ben Franklin impersonator along with the Pennsylvania Association of Numismatists  based in Pittsburgh, Pa are trying to raise funding to bring Abraham Lincoln impersonator Dennis Boggs to Pittsburgh August 4 - 8, 2020 in conjunction with the American Numismatic Association's  annual convention to be held at the David Lawrence Convention Center.

Dennis is a full time Lincoln impersonator from Nashville TN.  This funding will hopefully pay his daily fee, air fare, hotel stay etc.  Both of us have performed together recently at coin conventions in Chicago and Orlando to the delight of attendees including many families with school age children.

We bring American history alive and encourage others to learn more about our impact on our society.  I as Franklin live in the Pittsburgh area so most of the funding will be used for President Lincoln.

Donors are certainly welcome to come to see us at the Lawrence Convention Center for photos, selfies, and wonderful conversation.  Children are given special attention and a small memento to enhance their experience.

Please help us to keep our history alive.  We look forward to meeting you in August.
