Things are going quite well on the fundraising for the Music House’s Bruder “Columbia” Fair Organ but we still have a ways to go. The most exciting news is that we received a matching donation from very generous friends of the Music House from Traverse City. They are willing to match all donations up to $5000!
We also were told that the cost for the restoration will be less than the original quote so the final expense will be between $10,000 and $12,000. Much less daunting amount than the $20,000 we originally thought it was going to cost!!
The restoration is due to begin this month and the Columbia will be making the trip down to Ohio beginning September 14th. This means that there is an urgency to raising the final amount.
In order to make donating to this fund easier for everyone, we have begun a page on gofundme.com. Donate here: Bruder Donation. We hope that you will consider helping us rescue this piece of musical history.
