On January 30th, Parade of nations received a letter from the City informing the Budget Steering Committee only agreed to grant them services-in-kind but no cash grant for their cultural event. As a result, Parade of nations has to raise $3000.00 for the liability insurance due in May 2012.
The Parade of nation is a volunteer driven organization; no one gets paid a salary.
