Well, another incredible show Saturday night. And a true milestone for Connections Band. We passed the $50,000 threshold for funds raised for our two beneficiaries. This was also the first show for me to attempt to record it straight to my “precious,” the new Mac Book Pro, and you can find clips on the Connections website.
First a few thoughts about the show…
It was another great crowd….somewhere between 275 and 300…the exact number being tough to count because they kept bringing in more chairs and eventually folks were just sitting on top of each other.
But the total for the night was $3,250 for Nothing But Nets. We want to thank all the good people of Coppell, because this is one of our top five fundraising nights, in our 20-something show history.
That means 325 mosquito nets for Africa…which means, literally, an entire village saved from the scourge of Malaria.
We switch gears completely in April, turning to our “Doobie Brothers/Elton John” show on April 17th in Sachse. Make plans now to be with us….as we begin to make the climb toward $100,000!!!
