Arts Crush Needs Your Vote

We have some exciting news regarding Arts Crush and we need your help!

Arts Crush was selected to compete for the June Pepsi Challenge Grant in the Pepsi Refresh Project.  This means we are one of only 10 ideas competing for $50,000!

This is an incredible opportunity that could have a tremendous impact on this year’s festival.

But, in order to win, WE NEED YOUR VOTES!  Vote every day at

Your votes could help provide funding to participating artists, assist with our community outreach efforts and promote the amazing work of the artists and arts organizations in our region.

As most of you know, this has been a challenging year for fundraising.  With only 4 months until the next Arts Crush, TPS is only halfway to our fundraising goal for the festival.  Without additional support it will be difficult for us to sustain the momentum of last year’s success.

But your votes for the Arts Crush Pepsi Refresh Project grant could change all of that and put us on track for an amazing 2011 festival.
