A group of community members of the Driftless area are coming together to put on a Flood Relief Benefit Concert at the Historic Temple Theatre in Viroqua at 6 p.m. This benefit is an effort to raise money to support the immediate needs of those affected by the recent record breaking floods that devastated many communities in Vernon and Crawford Counties. While the flood waters may recede, many families are dealing with great loss and remain displaced for an unforeseeable time in the future. 100 percent of the money raised at the event will go to the communities in Vernon and Crawford County affected by the floods.
A star studded line up of musicians have answered the call to perform for the flood relief benefit. The evening will feature Members of Horseshoes and Hand Grenades, Sara Vos and Friends, Them Coulee Boys, Andy Hughes of TUGG, The Yellow Bellied Sap Suckers, Kickapoo Joy Juice, The Parrishes, Billy Bronsted, American Feedbag, FeatherWolf, Matt Monsoor, Bus Boys and more.
Local food and beverages will be available at the event. ALL proceeds from both ticket sales and donations will be distributed in a timely manner to the communities in Vernon and Crawford Counties affected by floods. Thanks to Kickapoo Coffee, Driftless Cafe, Wisconsin Roots Music Cooperative, Driftless Books And Music, Cowboy David's Bake Shoppe, Organic Valley, Viroqua Chamber Main Street, Proline Printing, The Driftless Music Festival, and more for sponsoring and volunteering your time and goods for our neighbors in need.
