Three years ago, at the request of our dear friend Dr. Manns, we created a disco-themed holiday concert to be performed at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center. The purpose of the event was to raise funds for the organization she founded, B.A.B.E.S. of Appleton, a non-profit respite and counseling center for strengthening families and preventing child abuse.
Through the years we've had many fun times playing at BABES celebrations...parades, dances, parties, and the annual holiday concerts. Each event had a fantastic theme, and we were always brainstorming what we would do for the next one.
Sadly, Dr Manns passed away last year. When we performed this concert in 2011 she joined us on stage to sing "I Will Survive", and indeed, her spirit still survives in the good work that BABES continues to do, helping and supporting families in the Fox Cities.
And it is in that same spirit that we want to continue giving back to this wonderful organization. So, any money we make from sales of "The Discofunk Holiday Experience" album, 50% will be donated back to BABES, in honor of the late, great Dr. Manns.
