Charlotte FemmeFest aims to reach, inspire, and strengthen our cultural community by showcasing the diverse work of emerging and established female voices throughout the region and beyond. In addition, FemmeFest will continue to assist non-profit organizations that serve the women and children in our community. Through music and art, our minds are expanded, our hearts warmed and our souls nourished.
This year the proceeds from Charlotte FemmeFest will benefit the women and children of Center of Hope Women & Children’s Shelter. Families who are homeless, hungry and hurting can come to the Center of Hope to be fed, sheltered, clothed, trained, and most importantly, loved. The Center of Hope is the largest women and children's homeless shelter in the Southeast.
Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 the day of the show. For tickets and more information, please visit http://www.charlottefemmefest.org. (Press release obtained from the event website.)
