**Fundraiser Update 07/08/20:- Propaganda has been closed longer than any of us could have imagined. We had to increase our fundraising goal amount to support us for a longer period of time. While restaurants with bars have remained or reopened, we were the first to close and will more than likely be the last to open, due to our classification as a bar/nightclub. There is no timeline as to when we will be able to reopen but everyone's kind words and donations have motivated us to continue our fight to stay in business. We wish everyone happiness and health in these difficult times. Remember to love each other and don't let them divide us as we are all stronger together.

Prop's been around 12 years in April, and  I've had the privilege of steering this ship for 9 years. Despite what you might think, there's not much money in it. Prop itself lives on the month to month, and for 9 years we've somehow pulled it off. With us being forced to close till at least April 30th, and with no knowledge as to what will happen then, this is the first time we don't know if we'll be able to keep the doors open without some help.

We have 18k+ people who have liked our Facebook page, so we've chosen to set our goal at 18k figuring an average of $1 per person. So even if you can only spare $1 it will help. We plan on a portion of the money going straight to our employees who are out of work to help them survive this time, a portion of the money going to pay bills so we are able to reopen when the forced closure is up, and a portion to make improvements to Propaganda so it's better than ever when we reopen to keep the music going for years to come.

There are a few different incentives for giving different amounts listed below. Please give what you can and on behalf of the Propaganda family, we're so grateful and we thank you.

Matthew Krug, on behalf of

Sick Boy Inc. DBA Propaganda

Propaganda is a local live original music venue in Lake Worth Florida that has been central in the South Florida Music scene for 12 years. With the forced closure of bars until at least the end of April if not more, we need your help to weather this time and be able to reopen when the time comes.

Matthew Krug

Matt Krug has been one of the owners of Propaganda for 8 years, co-owner of AOS Live producing music fests in Lake Worth, and still a performing musician himself.
