Hi everyone, thanks for checking out my site. I'm excited to announce that I've accepted an invitation too the 41st annual ACAC Show at the Lincoln center for performing arts in New York City! I have declined this show 2 times in the past because I could not afford to make it but this time I figured I would do what I could to make it there if I did get invited. I started a GoFundMe campaign online and have been taking donations to help me achieve this dream. I believe this will be a big turning point in my career and I need all the help that I can get to make this happen. Here is the link to that: http://www.gofundme.com/wi2nyc . Please check it out and pass it along.
I was thrilled to be featured in the local newspaper, the lacrosse Tribune. A reporter reached out because she found my campaign online and it caught her interest. The article turned out great but it didn't mention the campaign or how I needed assistance. My hopes were to get a boost from getting the word out locally through this very nicely written article.

Thank you all again for checking in on me and my progress. I am in to the show because I have paid the first down payment and sent a check for the booth cost itself but I am still looking for help raising money on the gofundme campaign to help me cover the cost of driving my display tent and art work to New York City with my truck to stay for the weekend show.
Best wishes. Please share.
