The 2015 Christmas in the Kitchen
Mitzi MacDonald and Keltic Reign
Raised $10,500.00 for Join Hands, East St. Louis
The total went way up from what we thought at the show!! In the end, we donated $10,500.00 to Join Hands, East St. Louis, which helped them secure their own building, which is right in the housing projects of East St. Louis.
I will be singing for their Grand Opening! Sunday, May 15th. Go to the Join Hands website www.joinhandsesl.org to learn about what they are doing at the Ubuntu Center For Peace, where Join Hands will find it's home.
