Spotlight on SPOT

Folks might not realize, but this Thursday's show in Wilson, NC isn't just a chance to see Bombadil play in a historic vaudeville theatre: it's also a chance to contribute to a great cause.

The show is a benefit for SPOT (Sharing Positive Outcomes Together), a Wilson-based organization dedicated to nourishing the physical, mental, and spiritual needs of children in eastern North Carolina.

The group offers all kinds of programs, including shinball:


And the hometown favorite, Wilsonball:

SPOT also offers other services such as tutoring, summer camp, leadership development, and school dropout prevention.

These programs play a key role in the lives of many struggling kids—SPOT told us that its membership has shot up from 87 in 2010 to over 300 this year.

Anyways, we think it's a pretty swell organization, and hope you do too. See you all on Thursday, and don't forget to pick up your tickets in advance here
