WYCE Hat Trick Concert with David Olney and Sergio Webb Supports Thrive: A Refugee Support Program
Underwriting support from:

Hat Trick Concert

David Olney and Sergio Webb

One Trick Pony, 136 E. Fulton

Monday Oct. 24th, 7:30pm

Donations benefit Thrive


Local radio station WYCE has been hosting the Hat Trick Concert Series for more than a decade. Each show consists of a national act brought in to One Trick Pony in downtown Grand Rapids. Donations are collected - but not for the radio station! Each concert benefits a different local nonprofit agency. 

On Monday October 24th, singer songwriters David Olney and Sergio Webb will be entertaining the crowd at the show. Called "one of the greatest American story tellers living today," David Olney is an author, poet, singer and songwriter who has released more than 20 albums over four decades. His music has been covered by the likes of Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, Tim O'Brien and many others. Sergio Webb, a Texan born and Nashville based guitarist will be lending his talents to the show.

The donations from this show will benefit Thrive: A Refugee Support Program. Thrive's mission is to provide Grand Rapids area refugees with a helping hand up by providing the services and opportunities needed to physically, economically and emotionally thrive in the community as our neighbors. The program focuses on providing "Cultural Brokers" or volunteers to families who are struggling, transportation to refugee-related programs that are underutilized due to transportation barriers, and social justice. More information on Thrive can be found on their website or via email.

There is a suggested minimum donation of $10 for this show. Formula Automatic and will be matching all donations, so each dollar given will be tripled!
