Donate to Bring Wukkout!® to the West Indian American Day Parade

After a successful jump up last year, we have been presented once again with the opportunity to “march” in this year’s West Indian American Day Parade, happening in Brooklyn on Labor Day.  Over a million people will be in attendance and what better way to celebrate our hope for continued expansion than by bringing Wukkout!® back to the place of its birth, Carnival! 

Participating in this parade will allow us to share Wukkout! with an audience much larger than normal; it is incredible exposure.  Of course, participating in a parade of this magnitude comes with significant costs.  Donations will assist us in covering the cost of renting sound equipment, building a float and insurance fees for the day among other parade expenses.

Any assistance at all will be incredibly helpful in making this day happen.  No amount is too small.  Click below to donate.

Donate

Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions and we would love it if you could share and spread the word.

Interested in jumping up with Wukkout!® in the parade?  Click here to register.

As always, I am so very grateful for your continued support of Wukkout!®  From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

Help Bring Wukkout!® to the West Indian Day Parade in Brooklyn!

Labor Day is just around the corner and that means the West Indian American Day Parade on Eastern Parkway is coming!  I'm especially excited about it this year because Wukkout! has been invited to participate in the parade.  This is an incredible opportunity that could really help with exposing Wukkout! to a much larger audience.  Of course, participating in a parade of this magnitude also comes with significant costs.  To assist with those costs, I've started a GoFundMe campaign.  Donations will help with covering sound equipment fees, renting the truck for the day and insurance for the day. The campaign link can be found here and please, feel free to share and spread the word.

**If you'd like to jump up in the parade with Wukkout! and will be in NYC on Labor Day (Monday September 7th) a donation of $30 or more will get you a t-shirt and reserve your spot in our section.  Click the button below to register.**

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.  Thank you all again.  I am truly grateful for your continued support.

See you on the Parkway!
