FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Del Rio Parks Foundation Announces it's Entry to the Levitt AMP [Your City] Grant Awards
November 1, 2016 — The Del Rio Parks Foundation is now in the running to bring a 10-12 week live music series to Del Rio in 2017.
Sponsored by the Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation, a national foundation dedicated to strengthening the social fabric of America through free live music, the Del Rio Parks Foundation hopes to qualify as one of 15 winning organizations competing in the Levitt AMP [Your City] Grant Awards.
The Levitt AMP [Your City] Grant Awards are an exciting matching grant opportunity created by the Levitt Foundation to serve small to mid-sized towns and cities with populations up to 400,000. Up to fifteen nonprofits will receive $25,000 each in matching funds to produce their own Levitt AMP Music Series—an outdoor, free concert series featuring a diverse lineup of professional musicians.
The Del Rio Parks Foundation submitted the proposal for the city of Del Rio, Tx. The proposed venue site is the San Felipe Creek Green Space. Del Rio's proposal is now posted on the Levitt AMP website for public voting. http://levittamp.org
A successful campaign for Del Rio, TX depends on community participation to get as many online votes as possible to bring the concert series to town. Community support, as measured by the number of online votes received, will be one of the key factors when the Levitt Foundation selects up to 15 winners.
Supporters are asked to visit https://grant.levittamp.org/voter-registration-page/ to register and vote. Online public voting is now open and ends November 21 at 5:00 p.m. Pacific Time. The Top 25 finalists will be selected through online public voting. The Levitt Foundation will then review the proposals of these 25 finalists and will select up to 15 Levitt AMP winners, which will be announced on January 5, 2017.
Laura Gill, Del Rio Parks Foundation President, said “We are very excited to be under consideration for a Levitt AMP [Your City] Grant Awards. This is a huge opportunity for our community and with everyone’s support, we can bring an exciting concert series to the people of Del Rio. There will be something for everyone so we are really encouraging every member of the community to cast their vote."
The Del Rio Parks Foundation asks supporters to start spreading the word to family, friends, colleagues and neighbors and rally the community to sign up and vote for Del Rio’s proposal.
