According to KidLinks CEO Diana Crawford,
Along with our team of talented musicians and music therapists, I hope you will make plans to join us Saturday, August 10, from 2:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m. for our annual sing-along concert, Hugapalooza!, at the Rosewood Center for the Arts.
Hugapalooza! is a free, family-friendly concert designed to thank the community for supporting KidLinks for more than 30 years and its mission to provide healing, hope and happiness for children and families through music therapy programs and therapeutic music entertainment. The lineup will feature Jim Newton and Paul G. Hill, with Bill Hudson on lead guitar, along with Gina Glidewell and Willy Welch. The event will be full of lively music and engaging activities centered around making children feel better, feel special, feel happy, but most importantly, feel like they are getting a big wonderful hug! Bring your kiddos, grandchildren, neighbors and friends! This event is recommended for children developmental ages 4 and up. Light refreshments will be served.
