HOW IT ALL

STARTED

Throughout life each of us have our own jobs, our own families, and our own goals we need to focus on. That’s why taking part in collaborative community projects can be a blessing. It reminds us of things out there that are bigger than us.

ACES, IFC Studios and Sidecar Coffee put their creative minds together, in an effort to not only bring Christmas joy to people, but to make an impact in the lives of others. The thought then came, what if we could gather some of our local musicians, showcase that local talent, to help achieve those goals?

We could not be more excited to bring this project to life, and it could not happen without the help of the musicians who took part. To further push the importance of impacting lives with this music, all profits will be donated to the Youth Art Team and House of Hope.

THE

Cause

WHO IT

BENEFITS

Youth Art Team brings together students from a variety of backgrounds and life situations to complete exceptional works of art through a process that values student voices in decision-making. The mission is to encourage youth to develop their creative potential, empowering both personal and social change through art.

House of Hope provides homeless mothers and women who age out of foster care with individualized support and transitional housing to achieve secure families, independence and permanent homes. Their vision is to end the cycle of homelessness in the Cedar Valley with respect, empowerment, stewardship and accountability as their core values.
