One Charity Event Posts Big Numbers, Another Seeks Extra Help


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.
