Monroe: Named Seat at the Oriental

Flavor Dave forever.*

This was Terri Williams' idea and a number of us agreed in the comments section on the Dave Monroe/FB Fan page.

We've reached $3K and donations continue to arrive regularly.  At $2,500, Dave secured a permanent* named seat in the Main House.

As we all know, Dave didn't drive.  He was a LEGENDARY user of public transit and an effective curator of rides from friends.

So it's only fitting that we let this thing roll for a while to see if we can secure an adjacent seat for Dave's chauffeur for the evening.  We're setting a fresh target of $5K total.

Donations go through GoFundMe, direct to MKE Film.  I have coordinated with MKE Film on this, so their staff knows what we're doing.  We'll settle out the appropriate wording for the seat(s) later. 

We'll name as many seats as we can based on funds.  Any excess funds will stay with MKEFilm and will help with the remodel of The Oriental.   Your donation is tax deductible through the PayPal Foundation, which ports net proceeds (after any transaction fees) DIRECTLY to MKE Film.

If you've already given; thank you.  No need to drop additional funds - but please do share this.

Let's do this thing.

*Nothing is permanent.  And only Diamonds Are Forever.**  His name will be on the seat for the life of the seat.

** If you know Dave, you know that Ernst Stavro Blofled was an important part of his life.
