Update #7

17 days ago

Just four more days left in this campaign. Here is what i want you to consider.: Uptown Bill's is a gathering place for people of all ages and abilities to work, play, listen and create in a safe and comfortable environment. Help us get the word out to the community. Funds raised will go, among other things, toward a better marketing plan and someone to manage it. We want everybody in the community to know about us.

More Info

Uptown Bill's was named in memory of Bill Sackter. To find out more about him, click here.

Something's happening at Uptown Bill's. It's a lot of the same  thing with a greater reach than before, with more involvement, more music,  more art, more baked goods, and more fun!

There are growing needs for regular gatherings of community members to discuss and propose action on local challenges.

There is a growing diversity of cultures, with music, food and art to be shared as we build closer community ties.

Central to our mission is the need for more lectures and workshops regarding local disability rights and challenges.

We will continue to be a listening room for musicians. The concerts are an important part of our mission.

In order to serve these needs and more we need your participation. Whether you are able to donate $50, $100, more -- or less -- any amount will help us meet these goals.

Thanks from the Board of Directors:

Joe Brisben, Holly Hart, Doug Bissell, Mary Vasey, Jeffrey Morgan, Rus Schomers, Keith Ruff and Mitch Rotman

Update #5

We are over a quarter of the way there. Your contribution is helping keep Uptown Bill's open to many activities. For instance Combined Efforts Theatre Company is rehearsing "Meet Us at the Horizon", a play by Jorrell Watkins there. This is one of a variety of groups and individuals who utilize and enjoy our community center.

Update #4

I look at my inbox and see that over half of the messages are requests for donations- politicians, causes, nonprofits. There are so many opportunities to support good causes.

I encourage you to see Uptown Bill’s as one of the good causes you choose to support. Any amount is welcome. Like other small nonprofits, we depend, in large part, on the generosity of our community members. Thank you for all you have done and continue to do for this community and beyond.

You may contribute by going to Uptown Bill’s web page and contributing via Fundly or Paypal at http://uptownbills.org or you may bring your contribution in or mail it to Uptown Bill’s, 730 South Dubuque, Iowa City, IA 52240.
