We would like to formally request funding from OSGeo-US to support
"QGIS NY 2020", a full-day event being held in Ithaca, NY on April 3,
2020.  This is a free event, and since it is all day, we would like to
provide lunch and snacks for the attendees.  We estimate $1300 to feed
an estimated audience of 50.  We would be grateful for any funding
that OSGeo-US might be able to provide.

Again, this is a free event, open to all who are interested in
learning more about QGIS.  We hope this event will help to make
connections between QGIS users in New York state and the surrounding
region, and help establish more of an open source geo community here.

We recently updated https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/QGIS_NY_2020 with the
tentative schedule for the day, and hope to open registration for the
event soon.

Please let me know if you have any questions, or need more details
about the event.

Many Thanks,
