Albion, Michigan, August 24, 2017 – For its second year, Walk the Beat is happening in Albion on Saturday, October 21, 2017. This FREE event is from 2:00 – 6:00 pm. Walk the Beat Raffle Tickets are now on sale for $10 and can be purchased at numerous locations including The Bohm Theatre.
Walk the Beat is an organization dedicated to providing musical opportunity and education to the community, primarily the youth. We do this by donating musical instruments, arranging music lessons, and sponsoring events. This annual “Walk the Beat” fundraiser in Albion is produced by Cliff Harris and helps us raise money and bring people together. “Walk the Beat – Albion is a free, public, 2-pronged event for those who like live music and prizes. The first WTB was in Grand Haven, and Albion is only the 2nd location for this music festival. Our generous sponsors allow us to hold a Raffle, which allows us to support local kids and their interest in music and literacy” said Harris. It will take place at 23 different Albion locations hosting local bands/soloists throughout the day and will also include a performance by The War and Treaty.
Walk the Beat Raffle tickets can be purchased at The Bohm Theatre, Albion Insurance Company, Parks Drug Store, Ismon House, Blue Ox, Dickerson Music Company and Team 1 Plastics. Each raffle ticket purchased will enter you in for a chance to win the $5,000 Grand Prize Raffle. Door prizes will also be available to win at various locations. 400 tickets have already been sold! The raffle will be held at the Bohm Theatre from 7:00 – 7:30 PM.
Join us for what promises to be a fun-filled musical event! Think Albion. Think Music.
