STARS TO THE RESCUE CONCERT HELPS RAISE FUNDS LOCALLY
Saturday, January 19, the Stars to the Rescue concert will come to the Peabody Opera House in St. Louis. Rachel Hunsdorfer said this star-studded event may help raise funds for the Bond County Humane Society.
Stars to the Rescue started several years ago and the proceeds from the show in St. Louis go to local animal shelters. The Bond County Humane Society received several show tickets to sell. The Bond County Humane Society keeps all the money from the tickets they sell.
If you purchase tickets from a different outlet, the humane society will not receive any of the proceeds. Tickets are $25.00 each and seats are in the Mezzanine section. Confirmed performers for the show include Uncle Kracker and Rodney Atkins. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. with performances starting at 6:30. For more information or to reserve your tickets, call the Bond County Humane Society at 664-4068.
