One of Palm Desert's premier events, Fashion Week El Paseo, says they need more money from the City to keep growing.
Organizers proposed an increasing sponsorship deal that would have the city donate up to $125,000 three years from now.
After the loss of over $20 million in redevelopment money, the City has cut back on spending. The council voted last week to give $75,000 a year to Fashion Week for the next three years, with the possibility of more funds later.
The event drew 11,000 to Palm Desert earlier this year, bringing an estimated $3 million to the economy.
