Perhaps the most awesome request for donations, ever

Gregory Tate’s turning 60 on January 26th.

Tate is the co-founder of  HartBeat Ensemble, a 10-year old theater ensemble Hartford is lucky to have, but which this year lost a $57,000 state education grant because of budget cutbacks.

So rather than get a bunch of socks (what does one buy an actor for his birthday, anyway?), Gregory’s suggests you donate to HartBeat using the following Greg Tate Math:

  •  60 ÷ 3 = $20: If you’ve known Tate for a 1/3 of his life, it would be 20 years!
  •  60 ÷ 2 = $30: $30 in honor of Tate’s radioactive “half life.”
  • 1 x 60 = $60: For the first time you’ve donated $60 to HartBeat Ensemble in Greg Tate’s name!
  •  2 x 60 = $120: Multiplied by two for the number of times in the last 60 years Greg Tate told you a joke that you actually laughed at.
  • 4 x 60 = $240: “4” he’s a jolly good fellow!
  •  Or any equation of “Greg Tate math” you feel like celebrating!

$57,000 is a lot of money to make up, but surely we can find something for this creative man and his fabulous ensemble.

    1. So’s your campaign to raise donations. You, Mr. Tate, are a fabulous asset to the Hartford community and if I never said that to your face, it is strictly because I didn’t want to seem to gush.
