Chris Lydon, a NYRA member from New Jersey, applied for a grant through his
employer, Time Warner. Lydon has done work for NYRA in the past by
volunteering at Warped Tour events in New Jersey, and attending meetings in
New York. Time Warner gave NYRA a grant in the amount of 1000 dollars, the
single largest contribution the organization has ever received.
In the past, NYRA has operated on a meager annual budget of around $3000
dollars, and this grant comes as part of an effort to bring NYRA’s funding
to the next level. NYRA expresses its deep and sincere gratitude to Lydon
and Time Warner for this generous gift.
