Casa Grande - Vote to Win!
Hi all. The grant application for the Casa Grande restoration project
is in the mix for possible funding with a slight twist. The National
Trust for Historic Preservation and American Express just pledged $1
million to help restore many of the Bay Area's most remarkable
landmarks - Casa Grande is one of those historic landmarks being
considered for funding! The twist to this process is Bay Area
residents can vote for which of the 25 local historic sites to get a
share of $1 million in preservation money.
The voting takes place online. Voters (you) register at the official
Web site <http://www.partnersinpreservation.com/bayarea>
where you can vote for one historical site a day until voting concludes
at the end of October.
The historic site with the most votes is guaranteed restoration
funding, but sites that show strongly will also be given careful
consideration by the partnership. The number of grantees and the exact
amount of money they will receive will be determined later.
So vote today and every day thereafter until Oct. 31 for preservation
funding for the Casa Grande! If you have friends, pass this email along
to them and have them vote too! Tamara
