Lino De Rosa has been a supporter of the Colorado Rapids since March 2012. He has been through the same rough seasons we've all endured, and he has done so loyally from his home in Caivano, Italy. It has come time to get his ass over here and to Dick's Sporting Goods Park to cheer on our Rapids in person! The money raised will be used for airfare, transportation, lodging, and food for his trip. If we can only raise enough for airfare (about $1100), then we will sort out places for him to stay, how to get around, and food. If we don't raise that much, all money will be refunded. This campaign will go on for the month of July, and will end August 3rd. So share away, donate multiple times, and let's get him over here!
As per gofundme: in order to release funds, I need to supply the following information.
1. Who are you and where you're from?
I am Jared Kaszuba, have been a supporter of the Colorado Rapids since 2008 and a member of North Corner Council, Pid Army, and now C38. I live in Boulder, Colorado.
2. Your relationship or contact to the parties you're raising funds for
I, like most of you, have never personally met Lino...we all know him through Facebook. I have been in contact with him since the beginning of this campaign in order to find the best travel dates for him before booking everything.
3. How the funds will be spent (be specific as possible)
I will be updating this page and other pages connected to this campaign with picture proof of funds received (after fees) and funds spent (receipts). First, I am purchasing Lino's airfare. Second, after discussing with Lino his goals for this trip (Rapids, Switcjbacks, etc), I will purchase hotel accomodations that make getting around easier. Then, after making sure everything is covered that needs to be...lodging, food, getting around...the remainder of the funds will be donated to the Oar Foundation.
4. Your withdrawal plan to get the funds from the campaign to the ultimate beneficiary.
Again, with full transparency, I will post updates (pictures of receipts) of money received and money spent so there is NO discrepancy.
