March 2014 Recap

Our eighth Provision was Sunday, March 9. We were thrilled to host Provision at Aurora, a soon-to-open art space in Downtown Providence. Many, many thanks to all the folks who came out and helped – by proposing, volunteering, voting,  and, as always, by eating.

AnjelAuroraMarch stats:

NUMBERS: Food
We fed 120 or so people, including volunteers.

NUMBERS: Money
We spent about $726 on the meal and other event-related set-up items.

We collected $788 via PayPal (RSVPs), an additional $360 at the door/for cash reservations, and $567 for a la carte beverages.

We awarded $700 to Hip Hop Magazine, presented by Medusah Black, and $200 to Block by Block Artists’ Residency Program, presented by Amy Walsh (see proposal info in the menu below). We used the balance of reservation, door, and beverage monies to cover event costs.

VOTING PROCESS
Voting was based on a tiered system: Diners nominated their first, second, and third choice proposals. First place = 3 points, second place = 2 points, third place = 1 point. Most overall points received the Provision grant (and a bouquet of flowers).
