Woodlawn Cemetery Needs Your Vote!

From Jason Gross, Social Media Manager, for Woodlawn Cemetery in Bronx, NY.
Woodlawn is one of forty New York City sites participating in the Partners in Preservation program   American Express and the National Trust for Historic Preservation are awarding funds to restoration projects through an online voting competition.  Grants go to the sites with highest number of votes and the most creative and passionate supporters (like you!). Woodlawn will use the $150,000 grant for restoration to the beautiful, historic Belmont Mausoleum, which was just featured in this Partners in Preservation YouTube video: 

To win, we need you to VOTE DAILY. You can also post your thoughts on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or on your website to promote the VOTE for Woodlawn. The competition runs until May 21st.
Please click on http://partnersinpreservation.com/, promote the vote, and let everyone know why the place that preserves the stories of over 300,000 people (including Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Herman Melville, Joseph Pulitzer, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, Simon Guggenheim, Irving Berlin, George M. Cohan, Lionel Hampton and many other great historic figures) matters to you.
Okay my cemetery friends...please take time to vote and also share this on your blogs, G+, Facebook, etc.

Woodlawn was designated a National Historic Landmark in June 2011. Please vote!
