LOD EUROPE 2023 UNDERWRITING/SPONSORSHIPS

Light of Day Europe returns on November 24th with LOD shows starting in Oskarshamn, Sweden on November 25 and continuing for a total of 14 shows in Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Belgium, England, Wales and Ireland. We are so THANKFUL to all our Presenters who help us organize these shows as well as local/national performers who all perform as a benefit and we do our best to grab them a warm bed, warm meal and some gas money for getting to each city along the way. It's amazing how generous these Musicians and Presenters are. Thank you!

LOD’s roaming troubadours (James Maddock, Gordon Brown/Reagan Richards (Williams Honor), Joe D'Urso and Rob Dye) are once again taking the message of music being a healing power to the streets of Europe from November 25th to December 10th. We are offering up a chance to donate/asking for help for "underwriting" portions of the tour to help with the costs. Partial donations help us along!

We are being proactive/doing our best to keep our costs down as this year will be the first time that once we arrive, we will stay on the ground until we fly back home on the last day. This means more time in Vans but we get to Ferry (Wales to Ireland) and Train/Chunnel (France to England). All with the Vans.

For many years LOD Europe was fortunate to have underwriting from a generous couple and LOD Europe could never have grown without their incredible help. There are so many worthy causes out there and we are extremely thankful to Ken and Anna Zankel for ALL their help over the years!!

All donations are tax deductible and Light of Day Foundation will supply donation letters to all folks who support.

We have listed 4 donation sections: Van Rentals, Hotels, Flights and Various Miscellaneous

DONATIONS: can be made by PayPal at: LightofDayDonations@gmail.com or by check to Light of Day Foundation.

If you decide to support by check PLEASE let me know so I can mark it down!  

Mailing address: LOD Foundation, P.O. Box 105, Allenhurst, NJ, 07711

 

VENMO: LOD is working on Venmo, soon, if that is your preferred way you can send to: Joe-DUrso-0 

and I will make sure you get your donation letter/notification from the Light of Day Foundation.


Many, many thanks for any and all help you may lend and please feel free to send over any questions.


All my best,
Joe D'Urso
