UPDATE: Fundraiser show by KWWL’s Abby Turpin and Travis Turpin raises over $22k for music programs

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (KWWL) – KWWL is proud to announce a fundraiser show that KWWL’s Abby Turpin and her husband will be doing, presented by the Friends of the Gallagher Bluedorn, on Saturday, July 20.

At 7 p.m., the Turpins will take to the stage on the UNI campus to share with the audience their musical history, as well as the story as to how they ended up in the Cedar Valley two years ago.  They will be joined by the Dakota Street Band.  The majority of the show will feature Travis Turpin’s headlining show that he has performed around the world on cruise ships and with orchestras.

The Turpins are volunteering their time for the show, with ticket proceeds going to the programs the Friends of the Gallagher Bluedorn support.  This includes the Kaleidoscope Series.  Learn more by clicking here.

“When the Friends Board President asked us if we’d like to do a show, we were more than happy to say yes.  It’s important to Travis and me to be a part of the arts community in the Cedar Valley and to help raise funds for programs that provide the opportunity for everyone to experience all that music has to offer,” said Abby.

Buy tickets here.  Abby and Travis will do a meet-and-greet in the lobby of the performing arts center immediately following the show.
