For those of you curious about where your money goes when you enter a raffle for Nuci’s Space – read on - Last night I was at the Caledonia Lounge spreading the word about #nucipass and happened upon an event called “Invading the Caledonia” -a night of alt rock cover bands. Turns out, the first two bands were comprised completely of students from our #campamped program. The first, Cheese Dream, played covers from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Not only did they NAIL IT…but they are ALL Highschool students AND they were only given 24 hours’ notice to pull the act together because the previously booked band cancelled. The second band, The Dookie Brothers – well, just watch the video. I think they sounded better than Greenday...on a good day. These kids not only displayed immense talent up on that stage, but the confidence, the courage and the camaraderie are what stood out to me. The common thread, if you ask me, is Nuçi’s Space and the Camp Amped Program. 100% of the proceeds from our raffles go directly to the programs and services we offer at Nuçi’s Space...and this is only a glimpse of what we do in the community.
