Nearly one year after the historic Waldo Canyon fire, two fires in Colorado caught the attention of citizens everywhere. The Black Forest & Royal Gorge fires began on June 11, 2013 & quickly grew to over a combined 14,000 acres. Nearly 600 structures have been destroyed & two people have perished due to this tragedy. Over 500 firefighters have been working tirelessly to extinguish the flames, working in 12 hour shifts. The Royal Gorge fire nearly destroyed one of Colorado’s most beloved landmarks. The Black Forest fire marks the most destructive fire in Colorado history, surpassing the Waldo Canyon fire of 2012.
While there will be many ways to support the relief effort, one venue in particular is calling for our community to come together & rise above the ashes. This Friday, Mr. & Miss Southern Colorado Entertainer will be hosting their 5th anniversary show at Club Q in Colorado Springs, directly benefiting the victims of the Colorado fires. Proceeds raised from this event will be given to Care and Share of Southern Colorado. You can expect performances by Dante Inferno, Mikka Paris, Ramiyah Devereaux, Kyree Myst, Lynda Desade, Brotherhood of Burlesque and many more. Expect great music by DJ MattastiQ & fantastic video sequences by DJ Jer. The show starts at 9:00pm on June 21, 2013. Wear black to show your support.: Benefitting Loss And Community Kindness = BLACK
