New Non-Profit School Needs Your Help

Dear Editor,

I would like the entire Far Rockaway to participate in a contest that could give my start-up organization a $1,000 grant. I sent a press release when I was a semi-finalist to the Wave. I am now a finalist out of about 720 people. The contest is from Idea Café. I need as many people as possible to vote my organization to receive the grant to help with the operational cost of starting a nonprofit private school. Participants can either go to my website at www.prepandtech.com on the homepage and there is a link for Idea Café or they can go directly to www.businessownersideacafe. com/small_business_ grants/finalists.php?grant_id=8

Prep and Tech is a start-up nonprofit private school that is going through the incorporation process and the 501 © 3. Prep and Tech is short for College Preparatory and Technology School. The programs that we plan to implement are fine arts, foreign language, technology and sports activities. We are currently looking in the Rockaway for a building or an organization that can house our school. Prep and Tech is accepting applications for the program from all interested participants.

There is a host of information on my site that you can utilize or from the past e-mails that I have been sending. Is there anything in particular that I am doing or not doing correctly to get coverage? I would like your input. If I have to pay for the "What's your story?" please let me know how much? I have many things that I have done so far and events coming up in the near future once the venues have been confirmed that would need coverage. Thank you very much.

RACHEL BINGER
