Send Sara to Italy!

I have been accepted into the International Lyric Academy this summer in Vicenza, Italy! This is my very first summer opera program and I am OVER THE MOON excited! I was just accepted today (2/28) and my first payment is already due march 10th. What that means is, while the other singers who have been accepted into this program have had at least a month to gather funds for their first payment, I only have 10 days to raise my first payment of $2,000. I was a late entry because they were still looking for a First Lady for their production of Die Zauberflöte (which I performed in November with UNT opera). I will then have until May to raise the other $2800. Tuition covers everything except meals and travel. I will save up for that on my own. But being a full-time grad student who teaches private voice, there's no way I can earn $2K in 10 days. Please help any way you can to help me spend an unforgettable summer doing what I love!
