Dear friends of the Orbit Room in Toronto and lovers of live music.
Two weeks ago I explained the strained financial position that closing the Orbit Room due to the pandemic put me in and I launched a GoFundMe campaign asking for your help with the debt I face.
I am truly humbled and amazed by the overwhelming response. I thought long and hard about asking for help at all. Reluctantly, I decided to set my goal at $15,000 thinking that we would probably never reach it.
But the response was swift and clear. Almost 200 people have donated more than $24,000. I am DEEPLY grateful. This relieves a huge pressure I've been feeling.
We reached our goal in 6 days and surpassed it.
The truth is that my original goal was just a fraction of what I actually need- which is $40,000. So I am setting my new goal at $30,000. I f we hit that goal , I will raise it again.
Once again I am eternally grateful for your support and hope that we can all enjoy a great night of live music at a new Orbit Room
Thank you, thank you, thank you for your continued support.
