We got enough fund raising to create the score to the Bum Phillips Opera. Now we need to raise enough money to fund the production: http://www.usaprojects.org/project/bum_phillips_2014_world_premiere_opera About: It is tax-deductable. And the website puts all the proceeds towards the production without taking anything out. And you can get stuff back at different donation levels. Like having your name on the program. If you have a spare $300, you can get an autographed copy of his autobiography. If you have a spare $2000 hanging around, you can go out to Bum's ranch. And if you donate, and let us know you donated in this thread, I will give you happy rep points because I can't do much more than that. They are desperate to get this funding by the deadline, because if they get this funding, they get additional funding that makes it work. Ultimately, I like to honor and support people while they are still alive. Getting this opera together would be a small way to honor someone who was important in Houston's history.
