Tyed Together Offers Family Fun With Music, Tie-Dye And More Today
Tyed Together 2021 will be a day of family fun where you can listen to local youth bands and have fun learning how to tie-dye T-shirts, this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Freight House Farmers‘ Market, 421 W. River Dr., Davenport.
Funds raised will go to the HAVlife Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization based in the Quad-Cities. HAVlife helps young people to participate in activities they usually wouldn’t be able to afford. Funds raised at the event will pay for kids’ music lessons and instruments.
Mama Bosso Pizza of Rock Island has organized and sponsored Tyed Together for the third year. Scott Florence, owner of Mama Bosso, has seen the impact music can have on young people. “I had two boys grow up in our local music scene and play music in school,” he said in a Tuesday release. “I believe this
experience can have a hugely positive impact in our local kids, families, community, and music.”
“I’m honored that Mama Bosso Pizza and Tyed Together once again are combining forces to help kids and show their support for the foundation,” said Mike Vondran, CEO of TAG Communications and founder of the HAVlife Foundation.
The event also doubles as a youth band showcase for young talent to gain performance experience. The following bands will perform at Tyed Together 2021: 10 a.m., Taze Wilson; 10:45 a.m., Nonetheless; 11:30 a.m., Strictly Business; 12:15 p.m., Tell Tale Heart; and 1 p.m., Ariel McReynolds.
Besides the live music, the main event is free tie-dye, provided by Mama Bosso. “We bring all the materials, and provide simple instructions,” said Florence. “We accept donations, but we wanted to keep the event totally free so there are no barriers for parents to bring their families down to the event. All you need is a white T-shirt.”
You can bring a T-shirt, and shirts will also be sold at the event by the event’s sponsors, as well as the youth bands. In addition to donations and T-shirts, proceeds from the Streets of Italy woodfire pizza food truck will be donated to the HAVlife Foundation.
