Last Thursday our Director and Founder met with Deputy Randi Tahara in the office of Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas:
Meeting her was such a pleasure. All of us working on the proposal assumed we’d get about 15 minutes of her time. Instead, I was in Randi’s office for an hour. As an actress herself, she is very involved in the arts world, not just professionally but personally.
Going forward, we’ll turn in a shortened 2-3 page proposal on the funding we’re asking for. Positive thinking!
A big thanks to everyone who worked so hard on the presentation! You guys did awesome.
And on the heels of this last meeting we’ve finally heard back from Bernard C. Park’s office and have a meeting scheduled with them this coming Thursday! Balls rolling!
