All proceeds from the event will go to South Louisville Community Ministries to help provide emergency assistance to low-income neighbors in crisis.

“South Louisville is facing the second highest poverty rate in the city, but with every ticket purchased, we can help another family reach stability,” Clare Rutz Wallace, Executive Director of South Louisville Community Ministries, said in a press release. “We do a lot with a little, and your donation could mean the world for a family in crisis. It could change someone’s entire trajectory and help them find stability instead of spiraling into catastrophe. Instead, a family stays in their home instead of being evicted. A neighbor no longer has to choose between insulin and keeping the lights on. A child doesn’t go to bed hungry.”

Tickets are $50 for adults and $10 for children under 12. Tickets can be purchased online here or by calling SLCM at (502) 361-7763.
