Does your club need a new fundraiser?
If your club needs a fundraiser that is fun, a good value, and requires a minimal number of man hours to plan, then consider hiring Lacy to do a benefit concert. Unlike many club fundraisers most of the money from a concert comes from the community not your club members. Call Terry House at (775) 351-5514 or email Thouse@SilverLegacy.com for more information
