EDM DFW are proud to announce the 2018 One City Music and Art Festival charity drive raised $1000 benefiting children’s homeless shelter, Vogel Alcove and Denton community organization, Keep Denton Beautiful. Through the collaborative efforts of DFW musicians, artists and volunteers, each charity received a $500 donation.
One City Music and Art Festival’s motto is “Party With A Purpose.” According to Founder Brandon Webb,”Our goal has always been to get young people excited and active in regards to helping level up their community. We use music and art as a bridge to connect with our community. Most importantly, our movement is bigger than music. It’s about the people who live in the cities we call home. We truly are One City.”
The Parker’s Plantation in Denton, Tx, the event also served as a voter registration home for Rock The Vote. Over 20 people registered to vote during the two-day event. This aligns with the “Party With a Purpose” mission by empowering young people to exercise their right to vote.
