Behind the Scenes
Reservation/purchase costs for meals and merchandise fund only the direct costs of those items. While volunteers donate endless hours of labor and supplies to this effort, event venues, travel costs to bring Journee judges from France, and the many operational costs involved in running a show require cash funding.
