Potato Salad Kickstarter Leads to PotatoStock 2014

Posted by - 12:02 PM on 08/02/14
Remember the famous potato salad? Well, the creator ended up making over $55,000. He says he'll use roughly $25k to pay all the stretch goals on his project and then use the rest of the money for PotatoStock 2014.
We have a giant outdoor space reserved (The Columbus Commons) for September 27th, 2014, from noon to 8pm. The show is free and all proceeds from selling concessions will go to a permanent fund to end hunger and homelessness in Central Ohio. We are currently working to sign bands and will continue to post updates as we get them!

While I'll only celebrate once it actually goes ahead, this is awesome. Good luck to them.

I didn't know what this guy was going to end up doing with the excess cash. Glad to see he's being a good human.

I truly think I would have kept the leftover money if I were him, so I respect this choice a ton.

I still think the whole thing is dumb, but huge props if he actually goes through with that. Respect for thinking about others; I spoke too soon.
