Two popular local charity events are tallying up very different outcomes this year.
Last month’s Fat Ass 5K posted one of its biggest years yet… generating $165,000 to be split among around two dozen charities.
Those checks are to be presented next week.
But last weekend’s SOHO music festival saw its turnout and fundraising dramatically reduced by torrential rains Saturday that kept a lot of people away.
To make up for the shortfall, Friday’s ribbon-cutting of the new outdoor plaza at the Prairie Capital Convention Center has been turned into a supplemental fundraiser for SOHO.
There will be live music at Friday’s event… and a portion of the money from tickets that are sold on Friday for future events at the outdoor plaza will go to SOHO.
