Ladies and Gentlemen!

Step right up, step right up! The Montford Neighborhood Challenge is now in full swing and needs you to participate. Once again, Hernán and Lou Ann Navarro have offered to match up to $1000 in donations from Montford neighbors and friends.

But wait, there’s more… Brian May and Scott Merrill have also issued a donation-matching challenge of $1000! These four people are some really generous folks who care a lot about our community. Do you want to be a part of that number? Any amount you donate will help, no matter how small. Let’s do our best and meet this challenge with a neighborhood goal of $2,000, Then Hernan, Lou Ann, Brian and Scott will match it for a total of $4,000!

These funds will provide much-needed support for the Montford Music and Arts Festival to be held May 21, 2016, as well as for various neighborhood improvements. Let’s join together again this year and exceed our goal.
