Sing for hunger at First Friday Open Mic

Got cabin fever? We've got the cure at the First Friday Wildwood Open Mic benefit series at the Church of the Wildwood, 347 Holden Rd. in Chittenden. On Feb. 1, from 7-9 p.m., musicians, poets and storytellers of all ages are invited to share their talents with an enthusiastic audience that is welcome to sing along and/or just sit back and enjoy the show.

"Hunger-oriented issues" is the overarching donation theme for this series. A portion of the freewill donations will benefit the Rutland City Rescue Mission Soup Kitchen. Soup, desserts and hot beverages will be available. The first 12 performers who call 802-483-2234 or email will be assured a ten-minute show spot. A sound system is provided for those who want it.
