DEADWOOD – Named one of the 25 finalists, Outlaw Square is already under attack as the site competes with over 30 other similar venues across the country for a $ 25,000 matching grant from Levitt AMP to fund his series of free summer concerts.
The Levitt Foundation has created this opportunity to serve small and medium-sized cities and cities with populations of less than 400,000; its goal is to strengthen the social fabric of America through free live music. The winners will each receive $ 25,000 in matching funds for the production of their own outdoor concert series Levitt AMP, a series of free outdoor concerts. Wednesday night's Deadwood's Outlaw Square concert series is one of 25 finalists out of 33 candidates.
The winners of the grants are determined by the number of votes cast for the different city projects considered. Deadwood is currently in 19th place. The votes were collected from the public on www.levittamp.org/vote until 6 pm November 20th.
"So go to the website and vote, vote, vote," said Bobby Rock, director of Outlaw Square. "Help support Deadwood. Without the help of the public, we will not succeed. "
The Levitt Foundation will review the best proposals and select the 2020 Levitt AMP Award winners, to be announced on December 20th.
Rock said companies offer incentives to get people to vote for Outlaw Square. The No. 10 sedan offers a chance to win $ 100 for those who vote via their Facebook page and Holiday Inn Express also offers a room as a gift.
If Outlaw Square wins the matching grant, public servants will have a larger budget to host their Wednesday evening concert nights.
"The corresponding sponsor for the remaining $ 25,000 of the grant is Deadwood Mountain Grand," said Rock. "If we get the grant, we get $ 25,000, which gives us a larger budget and allows us to offer a greater variety of quality entertainment for Wednesday night – 14 weeks of free music in Outlaw Square. This will also improve the activities of Deadwood Alive. When the crowd pays out from the last shootout, the series of concerts will begin between 18:30 and 19:00 and this will really add to the excitement that reigns there. "
In front of other cities such as Green Bay, Wisconsin, Tacoma, Washington, Carson City, Nevada and Santa Fe, New Mexico, Deadwood is the smallest city to fight for this grant.
"Outlaw Square is scheduled to open in November as a family entertainment venue in downtown Deadwood. In order to receive grant funding, Outlaw Square must receive favorable support through the online voting program at www.levittamp.org/vote, "said Rock. "Deadwood Alive, Outlaw Square and Deadwood have asked fans to spread the word to family, friends, colleagues and neighbors and rally the community to sign up and vote for the Outlaw Square proposal."
