Zimfest friends and family,

Thank you for participating in the $1,000 matching challenge, from friends and relatives who really know nothing about Zimfest to our long-time loyal supporters. With all of your help we raised $1,500. A big thank you to our anonymous donors for this final Zimfest 2018 challenge. We have met and exceeded our $8,000 fundraising campaign goal for Zimfest 2018.

Much appreciated, from the Zimfest Board!
