I will be performing at the ESGBA Christmas Party along with the Colorado Old Time Fiddlers’ Association again this year. It’s always a touching event to perform at, and I’m happy to be a part of it again.
The Colorado Old Time Fiddlers’ Association has been asked again this year to organize a group of fiddlers to play at the yearly holiday party sponsored by the Elyria-Swansea-Globeville Business Association (ESGBA). The party will be held on Tuesday December 8, 2015, at the exhibition hall at the National Western Stock Show. Fiddlers/guitarists will be performing around 6:00 p.m.
ESGBA sponsors this celebration for local families in the Denver Globeville area. 200 children and their families are invited to attend from the Garden Place and Swansea Elementary schools, ages 5-10 years old. These families are less fortunate and would not otherwise be able to provide a holiday celebration for themselves. ESGBA raises the funds and sponsorships to provide each family with food, such as turkey, ham, chickens, and dried fruit; toiletries; clothes, mittens, gloves and scarves; and blankets. Each child gets to select a toy from Santa.
This event allows these families to have a holiday celebration they might not otherwise be able to enjoy. It also allows them to get involved as a community.
