Bad Medicine concert will support library
YES! Watertown will present premiere 1980s cover band Bad Medicine at Turner Hall, 301 S. Fourth St., on Saturday, March 16.
The YES! group supports the Key to Opportunity Watertown Library Renovation and Expansion Project. The group is covering all expenses for the event so 100 percent of the ticket price will be donated to the library project.
Doors open at 7 p.m. and two 75-minute sets will start at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25 each or $20 if purchasing five or more. Tickets may be purchased online at yeswatertown.org/events.
The new library will provide additional space, resources and educational opportunities for all ages, stated a Yes! Watertown media release. The total cost of the new library is $10 million. To date, more than $8.6 million has been raised toward this goal. This includes an initial commitment of $4.38 from the city of Watertown and more than $2.5 million from the Greater Watertown Community Health Foundation. Part of the foundation’s gift is a challenge grant to the Watertown community that will be announced soon.
The mission of YES! Watertown is to be a force multiplier that supports and endorses educational events and programs, individual group members’ community projects and local economic efforts in order to positively impact the residents and businesses of Watertown.
Current YES! members include Brian Konz, Nicole Chwala, David Schroeder, Andy Grinwald, Bob Mudler, Kendall Bocher, Nathan Salas, Katey Higgins, Mike Sullivan, Dan Stukenberg, Mike Nienow, Brad Clark, Chris Braatz, Dan Rahfaldt and Josh Keepman.
