I am writing to ask your assistance in raising funds for a statue that will be placed in Menard Park, in Galveston.
The Bernardo de Galvez Chapter #1 of the Sons of the American Revolution have embarked on this project to educate the public about the facts surrounding the Spanish influence in the Revolutionary War, in particular the role of Galvez.
We have commissioned local artist Eric Kaposta (http://www.erickaposta.com/), and he has created the bronze miniature (photo attached) to illustrate his conceptual idea. We now need to raise about $400,000 to build the larger than life state, install it atop a six foot high granite pedestal and provide lighting, benches and other accouterments.
Below is a link to our statue web page which will provide more information about the artist, the location and our organization. Please consider assisting by making a direct contribution, and/or raising awareness of our project among similar thinking friends or acquaintances.
