Get Up and Give! L49 FUNraiser


We are turning  things up a notch with a fitness-focused "Get Up and Give!" 2018 FUNraiser with rock-hard goals! Each of the L49ers have agreed to train towards a fitness test or race, and your gifts will give us much-needed support as we run and train for new music! Our "Get Up and Give!" FUNraiser starts today and continues until day's end on Tuesday November 27 (Giving Tuesday). Follow us as we suffer and sweat over the next couple of months through the following goals:

Tim – not one but TWO half-marathons! (First one is Sept 30, second one is Nov 11)
Hudson – Triple Lakes Trail 40K (Oct 20)
Max – Houston 10k (Oct 28)
Jani and Chris – HEB Cameron Park Zoo Stampede in Waco (November 10)
Andy – Beef up/Lose weight weigh in/weigh out (Nov 21)

Your pledges and donations will be a huge booster to each of us as we compete for MVB. What is an MVB you ask? To dial it up a notch, we are hosting a contest among us of who can get the most donations and pledges, with the winner being hailed at the finish-line as the Most Valuable Badass(MVB) of the year! Select your team member when you give!

 Most importantly, your tax deductible gifts will fuel specific Latitude 49 projects and commissions and give us the boost we need to continue bringing new music into the world through commissioning, performance, education, and advocacy. Here are some projects we are FUNraising for:

-The production of our sophomore album, Wax and Wire 
-Commissions for this season and next, including works by Christopher Cerrone, Gity Razaz, and Ken Thomson 
-Necessary funds to keep our organization running smoothly and to hire professionals that will allow our impact and output to grow
-Miles for our travels (travel miles and points accepted!)
-Love Wounds collaboration with the Chicago Fringe Opera company in Chicago, May 2018
