For Arizona Gives Day, 91.3 KXCI Community Radio in Tucson will be broadcasting throughout the day encouraging people to support local nonprofit KXCI. And as we have every year, we will also be encouraging people to donate to their other favorite Arizona nonprofits, particularly Southern Arizona Nonprofits.
Everyone who donates to KXCI or schedules their gift on Arizona Gives Day will be automatically entered in a drawing to win a pair of Adele tickets for her upcoming August Talking Stick Resort concert in Phoenix. No purchase necessary to be entered in the drawing. Contest rules are at our website www.kxci.org.*
In celebration of the spirit of community philanthropy, on the evening of Tuesday, April 5 any person who donates to any registered organization during Arizona Gives Day is invited to join KXCI for a complimentary concert at The Rialto Theater in Tucson featuring Run Boy Runhttp://www.runboyrunband.com/. Existing in the tension between tradition and frontier, Telluride Bluegrass Festival Band Contest winner and Prairie Home Companion guest, Run Boy Run, truly exceeds the sum of its parts as touches of classical, jazz, and folk express themselves through the old-time core of the band’s unique sound.
Give to your favorite nonprofit, and then join us! Doors open at 5:00pm with Sweet Ghosts starting at 6pm. At 6:45m there will be a live auction for an additional pair of sold out pair of Adele tickets. Run Boy Run performs at 7pm, and Woven Oak Trio takes the stage at 8:45. Qualifying donations can also be made at the event to KXCI and other non profits at the Rialto Theatre.
Confirmed nonprofits joining us at The Rialto Theatre include the Humane Society of Southern Arizona, Old Pueblo Community Services, Our Family Services, Many Mouths One Stomach (producers of All Souls Procession.)
KXCI is especially pleased to be part of a day that unites Arizona for the common good, and we are specifically pleased to join Southern Arizona Nonprofits in building a better community.
The money raised by KXCI on Arizona Gives Day will primarily support KXCI Community Radio station’s general annual fund with an emphasis on increasing our educational and vocational broadcast training classes.
