YesPleaseMore Starter Grants: Tomorow is your last chance to vote!

YesPleaseMore is way more than a temporary retail space. And it's even more than a cheerleader for the local artists and businesses who sell their wares in the Denver Pavilions pop-up shop (heads up, btw: This incarnation of YesPleaseMore closes forever on September 15, although, as the "pop-up" moniker implies, it will rise again in a new location). Samuel Schimek and Brian Corrigan of YesPleaseMore are also putting the money where the mouths are, and giving out grants. With support from the Pavilions, Create Denver and the Denver Theatre District, YesPleaseMore will award $500 mini starter grants to the three creative entrepreneurs garnering the most thumbs-ups in an online public vote. There are fifteen entries, and the voting process is the easiest thing on earth. Help give a business a step up: Vote here now.
KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
