    Can you give me more information about what organizations will benefit from this event? Where do the proceeds from space rental and such go? Thank you!

  2. Amy says:

    Hey, AG! The rental fees are put towards event expenses, such as permitting, insurance, police (9 at $30 per hour), and rental fees for things like a stage, PA’s, toilets, tents, etc. We don’t officially charge admission at most of our events, but we do try to find a fun way to raise a little money for things like the 7th Street Mural Project, the donations to Adamson, Sunset, and Alliance Francaise, and to build a tiny reserve for when we want to do things like Big Table, which has a significant upfront expense.

    Hope that helps.

    My second paragraph appears to be missing-

    Just like last year, we are asking for donations for the NTFB. $1 per person- it buys 4 meals for someone in need, and they’re based in Oak Cliff!

    Thanks for your quick response. I guess then my question is…who is “we”? Go Oak Cliff?
