This is a fundraising event for the Central Minnesota Sustainability Project’s new watering system at the Main Prairie Road community garden. As an organization that promotes sustainability in Central Minnesota, BLEND would love for you to attend this evening of music, dance, awareness, and community building.
It is part of a new series being hosted at the Red Carpet Nightclub called “Making Music for Making Changes”. On Thursday, May 23rd, from 8:30pm to 2:00am we have live music performances by The Zombie Pit String Band, The Hobo Nephews of Uncle Frank, and the Evergreen Grassband. We will have also have live painting, and local sustainability venders promoting their efforts in the community.
Tickets are 10$ and can be purchased at the Electric Fetus or at the door, and it is a 21+ event. Please help spread the word to support Minnesota music and our local community gardens. (We are only $2,200 away from our fundraising goal!)
If you have any questions, feel free to call Justin Michael at 320-250-6630.
