IT’S ALMOST HERE– Well, Skyway fans, the event is almost here, “Music- It’s Wuerth It!” (Thursday, June 8, 2017)

Our 1st Annual fundraiser “Music- It’s Wuerth It!” for Welches Schools Music Program in memory of our dear friend, Josh Wuerth, is coming next week. Its’ a $10 admission that includes 2 raffle tickets. We’ll be open to the public, so space may be tight. Parking Attendants, Welcome Cashiers, Live Bands, 2 Stages, 2 Emcees and plenty of dedicated volunteers are making this happen! We are asking that all parents keep a good eye and attend to their kiddos during the event, too, thanks.

A HUGE SHOUT OUT to the Skyway family of staff, volunteers and Welches Schools community!

We love and miss, Josh Wuerth! We hope this event can be a positive and healthy way to celebrate Josh and all that he contributed to our music community. Please keep an eye on our Facebook page, its own “Music- It’s Wuerth It” event posts and help spread the word about this special event. Thank you everyone!
