I’m writing to tell you about an event here in Louisville that you do not want to miss: SpiropaLOUza 2018, Presented by 502 Bar & Bistro!
At this event, hip-hop and country will collide in a philanthropic night to benefit research efforts to cure Cystic Fibrosis! How can you say no to that combination?
Nappy Roots will headline the inaugural SpiropaLOUza, while also being joined by country music duo Branch & Dean. The event is on June 9th, 2018 from 5:00-10:00PM at the Norton Commons Amphitheater.
To quote the press release, “Nappy Roots, best known for hits “Awnaw”, “Po’ Folks”, and collaboration “Good Day”, formed as a group in the late 90s when they were students at Western Kentucky University. They recently launched a watermelon kolsch in collaboration with Against the Grain Brewery, endearingly called “Watermelon, Chiquen, & Gritz” after their first full-length album. The beer will be featured at the event.
Country duo Branch & Dean, national celebrity ambassadors for the Cystic Fibrosis
Foundation, have a vested interest in finding a cure for cystic fibrosis. Steve Branch’s distinctive vocals anchor the duo’s breakthrough hit The Dash, a tribute to his 23-year-old son, Theron, who died from cystic fibrosis in 2013. Following his son’s death, the group began touring the country to raise support and awareness for CF.”
All proceeds from this event will benefit Cure CF, Inc. – a Louisville-based non-profit
dedicated to fundraising for research to cure Cystic Fibrosis.
You can attend this event, enjoy awesome music, and help fund Cystic Fibrosis research for only $30; a reserved parking pass can also be purchased for $10. To purchase tickets, visit: http://www.curecf.com/spiropalouza.
JCP Eats is proud to partner with charity events around the Commonwealth of Kentucky. It is my belief that we, as people, have a moral obligation to help those less privileged, less fortunate, and those that suffer. This is a very worthy cause and I hope that each of y’all will attend!
As always, Happy Eating, Happy Traveling, Happy Living!
