Our budget/expenses for the 2011 as of September 9, 2011:
Seed money from 2010: $252.36
Fees donated to create a non-profit: $360
Funds raised from workshops: $4.30
Funds Raised from Fairies ball: $79.17

Park rental + cleaning deposit: $300.00
Noise permit fee: $25.00

City fee payable per vendor: $200

Total expenses = $1,390.53
We have $302.90 right now that will be used as seed money for next year (already renting the park for one day is covered). More activities could have been done for this year, unfortunately most vendors did apply in the last month before the event, so there was not enough time to order props and be sure they would get here in time.
We hope for next year to provide more, as we are planning more workshops and seasonal balls that will hopefully raise the available funds. For next year there will not be the need to pay for Fairy Ball tickets, raffle tickets, and the banner that was ordered is a sturdy vinyl one so should last for several years. Hopefully we will be able to buy a tent for the welcome booth.
