Please consider becoming a sponsor for the next forum in our Envisioning the Purple Line series - we will be presenting a Purple Line Project Update. Now that construction has begun, there will be lots of information to share and progress to learn about.
Here's some exciting news to entice you - we just received confirmation that Secretary of Transportation Pete Rahn will be our special guest speaker! If you have ever heard him speak, you know this is a real treat! Following Secretary Rahn, we will convene a panel that will include a representative from the concessionaire (Purple Line Transit Partners) and we will be extending an invitation to both Prince George's and Montgomery County Executives, as well.
Save the date! The event is January 18, from 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm at Montgomery College Takoma Park/Silver Spring. (All sponsors will be invited to a private reception just before the forum from 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm). In the next few weeks, you will receive an official invitation to attend the event - so stay tuned! As always, the event is open to the public and tickets will be free - but must be reserved in advance as space is limited. Please keep reading for the most important part of this ask.
We had to put this educational series on hold for the past year until groundbreaking occurred. As a result, our already bare-bones budget has been put to the test while we paused our fundraising efforts. Help us meet our bottom line by considering a sponsorship. We will publicize your participation on our website sponsor list and at the event, and all sponsors will be invited to the private reception right before the forum.
Purple Line NOW remains committed to bringing you timely information as often as possible, through our website, Twitter, Facebook and blasts like these. Because we want to make sure these events always remain free to our community, we must fundraise to underwrite the costs to put them on. We will continue to work to bring together members of the community, those who are building the Purple Line and elected officials with the goal of building a light rail project that will meet the promise of connecting communities, reducing travel time, and providing a clean, efficient mode of transportation.
