The Salina Konza Club will be serving up a delicious meal – and feedback for leaders at an upcoming micro-funding event.
“The first point of the event is to get somebody that’s working on a project, a little bit of seed money for their project,” said Susan Weis with the Salina Konza Club.
“The secondary focus was to connect those in the community with others in the community that are passionate about the same thing.”
Weis joined in on the KSAL Morning News Wednesday with a look a community event aimed at funding proposals for a civic project.
Weis says the idea came out of conversations with her peers about how to kickstart projects in a simple and straightforward manner.
“We’re asking our three presenters to stand up and just give a real short 4 or 5 minute presentation on what their community project is.”
Weis adds after a time for questions and answers the crowd will vote for what project they think is best.
“It’s real simple, ‘Eat, vote, fund,'” she said.
The proceeds from the gate at the door will be awarded to the winner.
Last year the Salina Konza Club raised $500 for a local YMCA project to gain traction.
The Community Micro-Funding Event will be held Tuesday, April 26 2016 from 5pm to 7pm at 110 S. Santa Fe (former Penny Layne location) Cost is $10 donation at the door and includes dinner and a vote. Meal provided by Brooklyn Boyz Pizzeria.
