A BIG Thank You!!!

Date posted: November 17, 2012

Hey Everyone,

This past 6 weeks have been both overwhelming, moving, and extremely intense!  Thanks to many of you wonderful Tall Lady Picture fans, we did an outstanding job at both the Final “Making the Cut” Fundraiser as well as exceeded our goal & expectations for the “Making the Cut” Kickstarter page!  I can’t thank everyone enough for all the amazing hard work, momentum and support that went into both of these events.  I am touched by the love and support that I have received from all of you!

There are so many awesome folks to thank for helping make my final surgery fundraiser a success!  I’m so grateful to the Down & Over Pub for letting us take over the place, the mouth watering meal made by Ball & Biscuit Catering, the phenomenal job provided by Power Karaoke for bringing the jams during our fabulous karaoke contest, as well as Tony Weber & Isa Carini for providing the fun photobooth!  Of course I have to also thank the wonderful sponsors, OnMilwaukee.com, The Milwaukee Onion A.V.Club, The Tool Shed, Classic Slice, Brew City Bruisers, Hundred Grasses Acupuncture, Alterra, Anodyne, Milwaukee Smoked BBQ, People’s Books, Rushmor Records, Hairy’s Hair Bar, FeLion Studios, All Holland Designs, Milwaukee Film Festival, The Milwaukee LGBT Film/Video Festival, Milwaukee LGBT Community Center, WMSE and anyone else I’ve forgotten!  Thanks also to Josh Davis for being a most excellent emcee, and to my fellow karaoke judges: D.J. Hostettler and D Kirschling as well as my always dependable “Making the Cut” crew!

There are too many generous people to thank for helping us reach our funding goal of $6,000 for “Making the Cut” Kickstarter.  I will be trying to get some of the pledge gifts out to backers asap.  My apologies for spamming facebook!  With your help we reached $6,511!!! This money will be going toward new lighting and sound equipment, a new camera, plus airfare and travel costs for me and the “Making the Cut” crew when I have my surgery next year, as well as other production expenses!

Lastly I just want to thank Fearlessradio.com for having me last Weds to talk about me, my films and my upcoming screening for Season of The Witch in Chicago on Sunday 11/18th!  You can listen or download a podcast of my interview here!

Thanks again to all of you who have donated, or help promote, and shown me how much support I have out there!

Much love,

Ashley
