Breanna’s Gift had a tent at the Renaissance Festival. If you haven’t been it’s a trip back in time with castles, kings and of course, turkey drumsticks. For us, it was an opportunity to introduce our program to the community of Renaissance fans and we had lots of fun being there.
Our volunteers weathered all the conditions possible during a Minnesota outdoor event: the rain, the sun and the mosquitoes, right? THANK YOU VOLUNTEERS for helping us give our program more exposure.
Breanna’s Gift was the charity partner at the Faffcon “unconference” held in Minneapolis.This group of voice over professionals from all over the world comes together each year at a different location. Our board president was present to receive the heart felt donations that we made to our organization during the 3 day event. And in the end, an incredible $8,000 was raised for Breanna’s gift. We are humbled and rendered completely speechless by the more than generous support we received from the Faffcon group. As voice over professionals, we understand that being rendered speechless would not be a good thing. But for us it has been the very opposite. The only word we could find to express ourselves was WOW! and WOW! THANK YOU FAFFCON.
Let’s do the math! 18 Parsons Electric employees = 36 helping hands and in just 2 and a half hours you get 700 Art Takeout projects. Wow! Thanks so much to Parsons Electric for donating this amazing gift of time.
Breanna’s Gift is proud to have received a $5,000 Community Arts Grant which will in part support our January through May, 2016 programming. The grant has been awarded by MRAC (Metropolitan Regional Arts Council) through an appropriation of the State Legislature with money from the State’s General Fund. Thank you for supporting our program.
