So far Tony and Barbara Lay are coming out from Atlanta and Tom Sanders from Tunica, MS. A bunch of others are thinking about making the trip. We hope you do too. C'mon, Tom Craig. You can do it.
We're having the concert as a fund raiser for YoungLives, a division of Young Life... a faith-based ministry that mentors single, teenaged moms and their babies. In 2016 we were able to sell out and give $22,000 to the charity. This year we're shooting for $30K+. We're excited to see the guys. Tucson IS a Kingston Trio Town and we have enjoyed great moments over the years.
I talked to Mike Marvin earlier today about concert details and he remarked that they have 30 signed concert agreements between now and February, 2019. We wish them the best.
Oh, almost forgot. I've also been fortunate enough to be the driving force for getting three of those 30 gigs: In addition to Tucson we also have Prescott, AZ on 4/27/18 and Scottsdale on 4/29. Each one will be a fundraiser for YoungLives...! Wish us luck. Any of you who've ever been the promoter/presenter know how much work is ahead - right Ben? Right Rich?
