Deciding to curate a large LORE Mainstage event was a little scary and so I decided to just make the leap. I booked the venue. I set the date. I decided that with a deadline, I would be forced to figure out the details.
And then, the very next day, I received a phone call from Sean at the Foodbank. He told me about the Fight Hunger Spark Change program through Walmart and how sharing stories about hunger in our community would benefit both the Foodbank and the Dayton community and would LORE like to curate a storytelling event as part of the campaign?
And so, of course, I said yes. The date was set. The topic was decided. A partnership was created. And the LORE Mainstage event was born.
And although it is still a little scary, it is also exciting and important. So, support the Foodbank. Support live storytelling in Dayton. Buy a ticket.
A portion of the proceeds from this event will be donated to the Foodbank.
“The Foodbank relieves hunger in the community through a network of partner agencies by acquiring and distributing food. The Foodbank provides the infrastructure for more than 100 member food pantries, community kitchens, and shelters that serve as the charitable hunger relief network in Montgomery, Greene, and Preble Counties.” - https://thefoodbankdayton.org/
