I am Wunderbar

CALLING ALL WUNDERFULL FRIENDS WUNDERBAR NEEDS YOU TO HELP US SAVE THIS LOCAL TREASURE!

If you have been to Wunderbar, you know what she stands for; Community, Inclusivity, Family, Friends, FUN, Vacation, Memories, Fresh Food, Music, Games, Relaxation and Play.  It's a felling, A movement and a unique vision that has been fueled in the energy of Love. Wunderbar is a dream come true built on sacrifice and intention. This vision has brought life to an empty building in the Coolest Small Town in America. Shes a happy and positive space standing tall.

Thanks to all of you, we have had an amazing second summer. We have been featured in many magazine articles, TV programs and online forums. We have seen a swell in all aspects of our business. The Glampground is growing and things are looking better everyday! We have met so many incredible people with amazing stories! We have been blessed to be the ones to hold the space for Wunderbar as it has taken on a life of its own fueled by the community, our guests and the magical beauty of our surroundings. We are grateful for each and everyday.

And yet ... few things come easy is this world. Our beloved Wunderbar is now in need of assistance. We find ourselves in a difficult financial situation and need to urgently ask for support from those who love the space like we do. It means exposing ourselves transparently to all of you with honesty and humility.  We humbly ask for your help.

YOU ARE WUNDERBAR! PLEASE SHOW YOUR SUPPORT TODAY!

Chris and I purchased WB on a contract for deed in August of 2017. For the past two years we have poured all of our energy, money and time into bringing this project to life. Between payments to the previous owners, building improvements and kitchen upgrades, we have funneled over $200,000 into the property. It has been a labor of love.

Our annual payment is due and we have exhausted every avenue possible to make the $50,000 amount. Due to unforeseen circumstances and costly repairs we find ourselves short. Our drop dead date is August 16th, 2019 and we need to raise an additional $35,000. We have re-organized and offered up a payment plan but that has been declined.

WE MUST RAISE THE MONEY BY THE END OF THE DAY, FRIDAY AUGUST 16TH OR WUNDERBAR AS WE KNOW IT IS GONE.

We aren't giving up, we are gearing up! We are creating a community driven "You are Wunderbar" campaign to meet our goals.

* Contribute $100 or more and receive a commemorative "I am Wunderbar" t-shirt and our gratitude

* $500 or more receives the t-shirt and a $50 gift card and a wooden Wunderboard with your name burned into it and hung on the "I am Wunderbar" gratitude wall we are creating

* $1,000 or more receives the t-shirt, a $100 gift card and a wooden Wunderboard with your name burned into it and hung on the "I am Wunderbar" gratitude wall we are creating

There will be an epic thank you celebration on Friday August 16th. Be there or be square!


Please join with us in spreading the message of LOVE!

In Peace, Love and Gratitude;
Chris, Teri and the Wunderbar Family
