Otino Waa is hosting a concert on May 19 in Bend, Oregon to raise funds for the kids at Otino Waa. But why a concert you ask? There are so many other ways to fundraise right? Well, to be honest, it’s not just about fundraising. Yes, we absolutely want to have all our children fully sponsored – but we also really want to hang out with you and meet some new people!
Think back to how you heard about Otino Waa. Was it through church, Facebook, an event? We really love our Otino Waa family and want it to grow, but sometimes it’s hard to meet new people and branch out. We thought it would be a great idea to gather up so many you – our dedicated supporters – and host a fun event that would be easy to invite your friends to. We want to make it exciting, simple and fun for you to share why you love Otino Waa with the rest of your world.
So let’s talk about the bands. This year we have The Gambler and the Thief opening the night. Have you heard them? They’re amazing! Tim and Vanessa have lived and sang all over the USA but decided to land in Bend and call it home for a while. Their singer-songwriter, Americana folk sound is complex, harmonic and down right beautiful. Their songs are filled with pieces of their story and when you’re at their show, it’s like you’ve been invited to get an authentic glimpse into their lives.
Next we’re turning up the energy with the High Street Band. Fun. Colorful. Energetic. Get your dancing shoes on because this band will have you tapping your toes – if not tearing up the dance floor – to some swing and jazz. High Street’s classy Zoot suits, big band sound and ability to transport you back to the 40’s and 50’s will be something you don’t want to pass up. We’re even taking out the first few rows on seats to make room for everyone to dance (thanks Tower Theatre!)
We know you’re going to have a blast – and we really hope you to invite your friends. Why not spend your Friday night in downtown Bend listening to some fantastic music – while helping to feed, clothe and educate orphan kids in Uganda? It’s a win-win. So come on out, invite your people, May 19 at 7:30p at the Tower Theatre. Tickets can be purchased at the Tower’s website by clicking here.
We’ll see you there!
