We are doing something amazing for this show. We are asking the audience to bring blankets that will be donated to Fayetteville Urban Ministries and we are having a fundraiser to raise enough money to buy 10,000 bottles of water to donate to Flint, MI. Please bring washed/clean new or gently used blankets to be donated. Our goal is 50 blankets. If you are interested in donating water please donate sealed cases with expiration dates more than 6 months away. We will also be accepting monetary donations at the show and through the link provided about.
In cooperation with OUR P.L.A.C.E., a non-profit organization.
