Leucadia 101 Mainstreet presents LeucadiaAID 2020: A live streaming benefit concert
For the first time ever, Leucadia 101 Mainstreet is teaming up with Keep Small Strong and Voice Your Vibe to host a live streaming concert event, LeucadiAID, on Friday, June 26 from 5 to 9 p.m. Emceed by Leucadia local Chris Cote of the World Surf League; Brian Schulman, founder and CEO of Voice Your Vibe; and Leucadia101 executive director Annika Walden, LeucadiAID will feature live performances from six bands, special guest appearances, audience participation opportunities, giveaways and more surprises.
Leucadia 101 Mainstreet relies on grants, income from events, and the generosity of the community in order to support local businesses and ensure the ongoing vitality of the 101 corridor in Leucadia. Annika Walden explains, “We are in unprecedented times, COVID-19 has eliminated opportunities for grants (for now) as municipalities grapple with their own challenges, and our beloved annual events like Taste of Leucadia, Summer Fun on the 101 and LeucadiART Walk will not be the same in 2020 as they have been in past years.”
Proceeds from LeucadiAID will directly fund programs and events to keep small strong and ensure the recovery and ongoing vitality of the 101 corridor in Leucadia, with several ways to give, including direct donations to Leucadia 101, a donation-based purchase of mixed six packs of local beer and becoming an annual member of Leucadia 101 Mainstreet.
Viewers can access the LeucadiAID broadcast directly on the Leucadia 101 website or on any of the following channels:
