David Street Station Seeking Community’s Help to Win $90K Grant for Live Music Events
Since its inception, the David Street Station has served as a beacon for entertainment in Downtown Casper. It's produced concerts, movie nights, festivals, Christmas celebrations, and so much more.
Much of the Station's success has come from community support and, now, David Street Station is once again asking for the community's help to vote for them to win the Levitt Foundation AMP Grant Award, which would offer them $90,000 dollars over a three-year period, at $30,000 a year, to put on more free live music concerts in Casper.
"Levitt AMP was a grant that David Street Station had applied for in 2019," said Breya Price, one of the grant writers for DSS. "I was asked to try [to apply] again as one of my first big projects with David Street Station, in hopes to give a new perspective to the application."
