The Lyric Theatre in Lexington is hosting a fundraiser for First Descents, an organization that plans adventure camps such as whitewater kayaking, rock climbing, surfing, and much, much more for people aged 18-39 who have been diagnosed with cancer. Motivated by their mantra, “Out Living It!”, the organization plans these camps all over the country for young adults.

By purchasing a ticket for only $25 in advance or $30 at the door, you will be provided entertainment by the band Lylak, a dinner buffet, drinks and a live silent auction, and most importantly, you will be helping to fund adventure camps for young people burdened by high medical costs associated with a disease such as cancer. The hosts of the event hope to raise $40,000 to send 26 young adults with cancer on the adventure of a lifetime.

The fundraiser will take place this Saturday, August 26th from 6-10PM at the DeWeese Community Room in the Lyric Theatre. You can purchase tickets online at https://lexingtonlyric.tix.com/Event.aspx?EventCode=953931. To read more about the mission of First Descents, visit their website at www.firstdescents.org. We hope to see you there!
