Help Ryleigh Get to Camp!
Hi! It’s Ryleigh! I’m setting up this GoFundMe because my audition was selected to go to Los Angeles to the A Cappella Academy this summer! Of the 565 applicants for this camp only 73 made it, so this is an extremely prestigious honor! This is a HUGE opportunity to meet and learn from some pretty serious people in the music industry (Ben Bram and Avi Kaplan from Pentatonix just to name a couple who run and teach at the camp), as well as meet new friends and singers like me from around the world! My mom is a single mom, so I’m trying to raise some on my own to help her pay my tuition. The timing is hard because we have TAG performances in Memphis and Georgia coming up (and maybe New York) that she's trying to pull together on her own. I guess I've become "Expensive," (see what I did there?) so I want to help!
The camp cost itself is $1995.00 (!!!!) and we've estimated $500 to fly out which is not included with tuition. If I go above the $2500 ($1995 plus whatever airfare is), I would pay that money forward to another camper who also may not have the money to go. Any donation would be greatly appreciated - whether it be $5 or more. There is a deadline, however. The fundraising deadline given to us by the A Capella Academy is March 20, 2018.
I'm so much more than grateful for all the support everyone has given me with TAG’s fundraisers as well as the personal love and support everyone has shown me. Music is my life and this opportunity really means a lot to me as a vocalist. If you are unable to donate, that's okay (believe me - we understand!), but please share my link.
Remember, anything above and beyond the cost for me to attend would be paid forward to the Academy for another person to have this amazing opportunity as well!
Thank you, everyone, for your support! Here is a link to my audition:
