Finally got to the community building and reserved the gazebo for next year's zombie walk. It is 11 months and one day until the next walk, if you want to mark your calendar for Thursday, October 4th, 2012. |
It's all about doing things in the right order. The gazebo is reserved (and again thanks to Tim at Parks and Rec for comping the fee since it's a fundraiser) which secures the date, and with the date set I can now confirm with the two charities and their contact people so they are prepared for any calls in case potential sponsors check our legitness.
Once all that is set up, I'll start listing the events I want to promote the walk at (maybe the anime con in KC in February, definitely the sci-fi con this summer, possibly the horror con that may happen around August). I'll go hunting for sponsors starting around April, although if anyone happens to be interested in sponsoring let me know and I'll put you on the list of people to contact around April.
So I guess it's time to contact the two charities and get that ball rolling so I can announce them as the beneficiaries of the next walk. After I'm done updating all the other zombie walk online presences with the 2012 walk date.
