The ASCA fundraiser and Planet Granite was a huge success!

We exceeded our goal of $20,000... and now we are close to $30,000. Help us get there by donating here with a credit card or here with PayPal

We have raised $27334.55 total so far
$10104 - from live auction at Planet Granite San Francisco April 27
$2240 in online donations before the event from directed from PG web site
$550 - donation checks (plus other checks in bishop)
$4440.55 + what comes in today - ebay outdoor gear auction and PayPal donations between April 15 and 30
$10,000 - match from Planet Granite Gives Back Program

All this will fund bolt replacement for the ASCA for over a year and lead to 2000+ bolts being replaced!

Huge Thanks to Planet Granite for inspiring, organizing and presenting the event:
Jeff Ceccacci, Mick Petts, Renee DeAngelis, Patty Nowak, Stephanie Ko Pound, Justin Vitcov, Carolyn Link, and all the staff who helped out.

And, of course the Planet Granite matching contribution of $10,000 is HUGE! This is part of the Planet Granite Gives Back. For every member, $1 is donated per month to climbing, community and the environment.

Planet Granite also helped raise over $20,000 in 2009. So all told they have been by far the biggest force in continuing the ASCA's bolt replacement work. Thank you!


Many Thanks to all the Sponsors and Presenters at our event as well as everyone who came, bid and donated:

The latest tally on money raised is $29436.92

so if anyone wants to make a donation before April 31, it would help us hit the 30k mark for this event.

Thank you to everyone who has helped out!
