After its fundraising power was dampened by heavy weekend rain, the SOHO music festival is hoping to recover some of those lost dollars.
The ribbon-cutting to be held Friday night for the new outdoor plaza at the Prairie Capital Convention Center will also include a supplemental fundraiser for SOHO… with proceeds to go to the various charities supported by the outdoor music festival. The event will feature live music… and a portion of all tickets sold Friday for future outdoor plaza concerts will be donated to SOHO.
Last month’s Fat Ass 5K will result in more than $165,000 going to two dozen charities. The popular street race in downtown Springfield has raised more than $700,000 in its six-year history. Race organizers will present checks to its chosen charitable organizations next week.
