More than ten creative businesses are joining forces with the Chewstick Foundation during tomorrow’s ‘happy hour’ for an evening of music and fundraising.

Among the artists performing from 5pm to 7pm are Joy T Barnum, Mike Hind, Raven, Ishta, Savanna D and De Onion Patch Crew, Christopher Darrell and Cal Worrell. There will also be a bake sale by Dangelini’s Cafe and friends.

The purpose of this event is to help raise funds but to also bring more awareness not only to the business in the building but to the importance and power of The Chewstick Foundation.”
