Happy Badger to host fundraiser for local familyWritten by Betsy Woodruff | | firstname.lastname@example.org
When the tornado swept through Northwest Ohio, Donna Cohen, co-owner of the Happy Badger in Bowling Green, wanted to do something to help victims. So she decided to coordinate a series of concerts to help out.
The concerts will raise money for the Hunt family, whose home was demolished in the storm. They did not have insurance and lost everything but some wet socks to the tornado.
To help them, the Happy Badger will sponsor a series of concerts. They will be free. To raise money, they will pass around a basket and encourage donations.
The first concert will be on Friday, June 18 from 6-8 p.m. on the lawn of the shop. The AntiVillains and Estar Cohen and the Power of the Plume will perform.
On Saturday, June 19, the Original Bag with Jason Quick and Ben Langlois will play from 1-3.
On June 26, a group of poets from Toledo will have a reading and acoustic duo Blue Moon will perform.
On July 10 from 1-3 p.m., Anthony Two Feathers will give a flute performance. From 6-8 p.m. on the same day, Katey Sardasky will have an art exhibit at the store. Ben Barefoot will play acoustic guitar.
On Saturday, July 17 from 1-3 p.m., the store will host a silent auction of jewelry, photography, framed art, and other items donated by local artists. Billie Tulk will give tarot readings. All the proceeds will go to the Hunt family, and Blue Moon will perform again.
