A Benefit for the Kootenai County Foodbank
Because the Kootenai Democrats believe in charity and public service, we invite our friends to support a Show Case of Talent–A Benefit Concert. The concert is fundraiser for The Community Action Partnership (CAP) foodbank. Most importantly, it will raise money to provide 1600 needy families with the ingredients to produce a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner. The show not only includes a fantastic roster of local talent but also a special presentation of The Red Hot Mamas’ 2017 Macy Thanksgiving Day Parade routine. In addition, an original painting by Mike Bolan will be raffled. Not only is Mike an accomplished artist, he is also the show’s director and an original member of The Fabulous Shadows. Tickets are $25. Purchase them by calling 208-667-1865. Or buy them online or at the Kroc Center. So come to the Kroc this Friday. You will have an enjoyable time while helping to support a worthy cause.
