We arrived home from NYC nearly a week ago and are still buzzing from all the excitement! Performing at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade was truly a dream come true. We couldn’t have done it without you. The amount of support we received throughout this experience has been overwhelming. We are so grateful for all our donors and supporters for making this opportunity possible!
Some of the highlights from our week in the Big Apple include visiting the Statue of Liberty, seeing two professional circuses, attending Broadway shows, having a circus photo shoot in Central Park, sharing Thanksgiving dinner with Big Apple Circus under the big top, and, of course, performing in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade with Billy Porter and Coach’s Rexy in the City float!
All of this was possible because of your generosity. Your donations completely covered the costs of airfare, lodging, new equipment for the parade, our visit to the Statue of Liberty, professional photography, and more! Any funds left over from our fundraiser will go towards costumes and props for our 2020 Spring show and to start a seed fund for future travel and performance opportunities.
It was an incredible feeling to perform in front of millions of viewers, but it meant even more to us knowing that you, our friends and family, were rooting for us back home! Thank you again for your support of the Gamma Phi Circus.
