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 To read more about the mission of First Descents, visit their website at We hope to see you there!
