Kenosha Festival of Cartooning organizer (founder, director) Anne Hambrock has announced that her Kickstarter project to raise $10,000 for festival expenseshas been fully funded with another 24 hours to go. As of this morning, I reported that the project was $3,693 short of the goal. In just the last 6-8 hours, the project has doubled donation amounts to total over $13,000.
Thanks to the generosity of all our backers (You’re the best!) and also the support of the National Cartoonist Society Foundation (They’re the best, too!) we have made our goal and then some!
This means that, not only will the festival happen this year – it will be even better than last year!
The extra money will help me make it a truly stellar event and give me a publicity budget as well (which I did not have last year)
The pledge drive is still officially open until tomorrow at 5:00 pm CST and any more money I receive in pledges will go toward festival expenses I may not have anticipated. If there is any money left over, it will be banked for another festival.
