IMPORTANT CHANGES 2/3
On Monday we announced sponsorship opportunities for business owners looking to promote their stores, restaurants, galleries, etc., with a Walkaround. We also announced the opportunity to sponsor Walking Tours through specific neighborhoods. Today we announce a slight increase in contributions (coffees), a slight increase in our current membership, and a new membership tier. Here are the details:
Coffees went up from $4 to $5 USD.
Membership (now called ‘Clusterite’ membership) went up from $4/$40 per month/year to $5/$50.
A new membership tier (Cluster Angel) was added at $8/$80 USD per year. Both membership levels include two-month savings with the annual choice.
If you are a current member, you have the option to move to the new, higher tier.
