This is John Scagliotti, administrator of the Kopkind Colony. For more than 20 years we have been hosting journalist and filmmaker seminars here at our farm. For the first time in two years, because of COVID, we have finally resumed our summer programs. In accordance with our COVID protocols, we set up a large tent to host our seminars outdoors. But oh my... last night, our big tent was destroyed in a microburst of calamitous proportion! Also flying out across the fields were chairs, folding tables, and another smaller tent, all damaged. We now need to get a new tent here before our filmmaker's camp, which starts Sunday, July 31. We need your help. Time is of the essence in order to continue our work this summer. Please donate now to this critical GoFundMe appeal. Thank You for your generosity and continued support.
