Cali, Here We Come!

Upcoming Events

LA, Fund Drive, and a Fan Video!

Greetings!

The end of the season is ramping up!!

We’re heading back to LA next week, for our last LA service of the season, Sunday, June 16th. The theme will be OBSESSION.

And, we’re in the midst of our fund-drive, to raise $45K by July 2nd. This money is essentially our operating budget for the rest of the year, so it’s crucial that we meet our goal. Here’s the link where you can give. And, HUGE THANKS to all who contributed so far!!

And, our I’m A Fan campaign continues with videos from people like you. We want you to make a video for us! For inspiration, check out this week’s featured video: our pal and NYC admirer, Julie Zoppo, at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  It’s cute and just a little bit naughty.

Julie Zoppo Is A Fan!!
Julie Zoppo Is A Fan!!

So, make a video of yourself, no more than 30 seconds long.
Maybe you’re doing something crazy or at rehearsal or traveling to far off lands, feel free to be as creative as you want, even show off, if you feel like it. Then, include some kind of fan in the video (if you have a Secret City Fan, that’s great, but don’t let it stop you if you don’t) and include the phrase,
“I’m a fan of The Secret City.”

Email your video to thesecretcity@gmail.com; we’ll post them to our youtube account, share them on social media, and the best ones we’ll use in the fund-drive announcements, like Julia’s above.

And, who knows, maybe some of our li’l fan videos will go viral and attract all sorts of new people to our fund-drive and the ever expanding community of The Secret City.

So, see some of you in LA on the 16th!
Give to our fund drive!
And, make a li’l video for us, please!

Thanks!

Chris
