Light up Historic Downtown Truckee!
Please help us meet our GOAL of $20K!
August 26th, 2021 UPDATE: The Truckee Downtown Merchants Association (TDMA) is at it again...Due to new Nevada County Health mandates we are unable to produce the last Truckee Thursdays. We also decided not to produce Art & Soul ArtWalk and Cocktail Bingo.
The TDMA is seeking financial support from the Truckee community to ensure that we have funding to continue lighting up downtown Truckee and produce the Downtown Holiday Festival & Bud Fish Tree Ceremony (Friday, November 19, 2021).
Thank you to all who have donated to the 2020 campaign! $11,490 was RAISED! The TDMA Board of Directors and staff are so thankful for all the support.
Downtown Holiday Lighting, Year-Round Lighting, Downtown Holiday Festival and maintenance projects cost $40k annually.
The Ask: The Truckee Downtown Merchants Association (TDMA) is reaching out to the Truckee Community and our Visitors to help us Light Up Historic Downtown Truckee. Your donation will support TDMA's Downtown Holiday and Year-Round Lighting and the ability to continue our work with small businesses on strategies and projects in response to COVID-19 and beyond.
****Money raised will help TDMA cover costs for 2021 Holiday & Year-round lighting of downtown, beautification and maintenance projects and support economic vitality projects**
Our COVID-19 Story: The greatest impact of COVID-19 has been the loss of revenue due to the inability to produce events in 2020 and now 2021.
