(Save Our Plumbing!)

Crowdfunding Campaign

Part 2

Part 2!!!

Dear Friends and Fellow Chocolate Lovers,

Here we go again!

We are currently in need of some help with our costly plumbing. As most of you know, our new studio and shop is in the historical district of Tarpon Springs, Florida. This is indeed the charm of our community, but now we are feeling the down side of being in an old beautiful building. We entered our space with two sections of water to work with, but now we are only down to one. To update our plumbing to accommodate all of sinks, we need a plumber to do some work. This is going to include having to open up our walls to do reconnects, as well as plumbing water into our bathroom.

Our plumbing estimate is $2,500. If we run into issues, this cost may go up. We are fundraising to help offset our costs and any bit will help. We are ready to OPEN and appreciate your help!!!

We plan on an estimated opening date mid-July. We plan on beginning to roll out our rewards (involving chocolate making) starting in October. We are going to begin classes and workshops as soon as we feel that it is safe to gather again.

Your contribution gets you sweet treats and helps us to make them for you!!!

Our Fundraising Goal is

$2,500

ASAP! (We need plumbing now!)

 

Anything over our plumbing goal will be going towards unforeseen costs or new equipment.

As of July 6, 2020, we need
$1,250
to hit our goal!!!
