Support Red Sky Stage #SmallBusinessRelief

#SmallBusinessRelief   Thank you to everyone who has contributed to Red Sky Stage in the past, whether through the previous go fund me campaign, attending our concerts and events or helping out at our new home in Bay Harbor.

Red Sky Stage is growing, adding events and putting on great shows.  But frankly, despite my best efforts, we are significantly behind in our rent.  It has taken more time than I hoped to rebuild an audience after the necessary move from Downtown Petoskey to our new home in nearby Bay Harbor.

Red Sky Stage is a unique community asset, providing entertainment by local artists and touring national and international performers in an intimate, coffee house style listening room environment with great sound.  Red Sky Stage is also a home for a variety of classes, meetings, rehearsals and community events.

The go fund me campaign of last spring provided Red Sky Stage vital support for moving expenses and turning the former computer store in the Village of Bay Harbor into a friendly and supportive performance environment.  If you have not been here yet to see the result of your efforts, please visit or attend an event and experience it for yourself

Bay Harbor has been very welcoming to Red Sky Stage and those who come here.  They have worked closely with us every step of the way.  Which brings us to our present predicament that prompts me to ask for your help.

While attendance at our events has been steadily growing, it has not been fast enough to pay our rent.  Despite my best efforts to reduce business and personal expenses and increase ticket revenue,  we are now significantly behind in our rent.  We need to make progress on this front immediately if we are to continue to exist.

You can help Red Sky Stage continue to exist by attending our events, inviting your friends to experience and enjoy the new location and contributing what you can.   Also, please use your personal and social media contacts to let others know about this campaign.  Your generosity will allow Red Sky Stage to continue to provide the quality entertainment and community service that you have appreciated and supported.

I will greatly appreciate whatever amount you are able to contribute.  Thank you.
