Thanks IdeaConnection for a great medium. It's great that there's such a forum out there to help develop ideas from the wider community, and after having two out of two of my ideas chosen I'll surely be keeping an eye on more contests as they come up! People seem to like the 'outside the box' solutions, and this gives a very promising view of the future too. - A. Currey

San Francisco Sinfonietta
Seeking innovative ideas on fundraising.
 
Winner: K. McCarthy, Winter Park, Florida, USA
  Prize:   $1,000
Thanks IdeaConnection! You've created four winners! My hope is that the client, San Francisco Sinfonietta, runs with the idea and raises a ton of awareness and money while taking its music to the streets of San Francisco. The people of the Bay Area will win as great music comes to them. I've also won by advancing the arts and the $1,000 pay day was certainly a welcomed bonus. Finally, IdeaConnection wins because it facilitated a greater good for all four winners. - K. McCarthy
