Getting Involved

I’m part of the media and I cover some horrible stories about what can happen in the community. I’ve always wanted to get involved on the opposite side and see the good side of what people can accomplish by themselves or together as a group.
There are two upcoming events I hope you’ll consider attending. One of them benefits the Domestic Violence Center. The organization needs to renovate their facility and the money goes to that fund. You can click on the art card to find out more about this Friday’s fundraiser. There are three bands, including the Boys from County Hell. If you’ve see them you know how good they are. The doors open at 7pm and stay that way until Midnight.

Also, if you’re looking for something with a little more notice, check out the Foundation for Community Betterment’s Black & White Ball coming up in May. Tonight, I attended a kick-off event at the Foundation Room at the House of Blues. The organization is a “Pay It Forward” group. They believe in giving back to the community in a big way. One of their board members is an example of what the group can accomplish. The price might be a little steep for some people. But, if you read some of the things the group has done, you’ll change your mind.
