FLAVA'S LOUNGE VEGAS 2017

********************************

In 2014 we assisted with financial gifting towards a variety of projects and needs for creative souls across the United State, in the area of:

Studio Time
Projects
Advertisement Materials
Show Hosting Expenses
Travel
Moving
Education
and more

The funding was provided by some gifting that has come into the Flava News Movement along with personal savings.

This year we want to include you in building our company along with establishing a "Flava Coffee House, LLC/UTAE Gifting Program"  We have established an application with requirements to apply along with a team that will review the applications.

We would like to be able to gift from $50.00 to $500.00 towards the chosen artist/project. 

We are seeking to raise initially $5,000.00 but the more we raise, the more we can do in support of some amazing talents that are in need of assistance and deserve the help. 

Not only will be provide the financial gifting, but we will provide online promotions on social media and FCH206 Radio.

Thank you for your time and consideration.  We hope that you will join us in supporting the arts.  Can you imagine a day without experiencing some form of art?  Be part of keeping quality art alive!

Sincerely,

Susan "Lady Flava"Koshi

Background of this fundraier:

I, Susan Koshi started my journey and passion for the arts at my coffee house, called Flava Coffee House in North Seattle (2003-2008) to then establishing a strong online pressence around the global, know as the artist cheerleader.  I am the owner of Flava Coffee House 206 Radio (FCH206 Radio)on BlogTalkRadio out of Seattle, WA.  For 2014 we reached "112,331" listens to our station which on an average was airing 7 hours per week.  The shows center around topics regarding the artist and industry to playing a variety of high quality, but unknown independent artists.  I do feature interviews and host artist round tables along with listening parties and album and book release features.  I will be joining the team on Soul City Radio out of Baltimore, MD this year. With the years that I have been working with, in a variety of positions in the arts & entertainment industry I have learned and grown in this industry which I have been apart of for the last 10 years.  I have become very knowledgable and well connected.  So we decided to form Flave Coffee House Artist Consulting Services & Referrals in 2014.

Jace ECAj is an established MC, performer and community advocate since the beginnings of Hip Hop 20 plus years ago to today.  He has hosted and is the founder of a Hip Hop Festival known as Dope Emporium along with being the lead MC of the duo known as Black Stax with the soulful singer, Miss Felicia Loud.  Jace is the co-founder along with myself of Unity Through Arts Exchange.  An organization that provides quality artist the means to travel to Seattle to be hosted and showcased.  The agreement is that they assist in hosting an artist in their city.  We are building not only with artist but with venues, promoters, industry persons, sponsors and fans.  Jace is busy working on a variety of projects that is centered around building community and supporting a better life and providing our youth with the necessary tools to achieve and succeed.

UTAE (Uniting Through Arts Exchange) has a place for the Independent, Focused, Ready and Creative artists. It was built to support the efforts of these type of artists while building a network to do more than just talk about it.

Its main purpose is to find like minded entities throughout the globe that are willing to share their resources to help create an 'Exchange Program'.
The 'Exchange Program' is a program where the artists, promoters, venues and supporters extended themselves to other artists who want to take their artistic journey in a new area/region or expand their reach in an area/region outside if their own. Building 'win wins' with other artists, so that as artists travel throughout the globe they know that there are people on the ground there that can help them make their journey a successful and respectable one.

UTAE was created to make sure that every artist that is ready has the proper connections in each city to make an impact. Its also created to ensure that there are checks and balances in making sure that each artist returns the 'favor' when one of the artists of the UTAE network comes to area/region they get treated RIGHT.

Forward Movement is the motto and mission of UTAE!
