SNG offers help for Dandelion Festival Funding

 
DONATE NOW

On Sunday, April 26 news was released that TransCanada was listed as a sponsor on the Dandelion Festival website. On hearing this news, some local musicians booked to play at the Dandelion Festival, announced that they would be withdrawing from performing should TransCanada be a sponsor. Members of Sustainable North Grenville were made aware of the musician’s position. SNG understands and shares the concerns of those musicians. SNG values the festival as an important event that brings people together and creates strong community connections. In order to support the success of this year’s festival SNG was spurred into action. Members of SNG stepped forward with an offer to attempt to raise $5000 in alternative funds so that the festival can continue as planned. In an offer of good faith the Board of the Dandelion Festival has agreed that, should SNG be successful in raising the funds by a deadline of May 8, TransCanada’s funds will be returned.

Sustainable North Grenville is preparing a crowd funding campaign using an Indiegogo platform. SNG has committed to kick off the funding campaign with a donation of $500.
