Kids these days: They’re always code-talking with their LOLs and HMUs and starting their fundraisers for good causes. For this last bit, thank the kind people at Durham’s Habitat for Humanity Youth United. The program empowers youth ages 5–25 to fully fund and build a home. This year’s project will be the seventh such house the program has funded.
Youth United’s Got Talent is just one of many fundraising and advocacy events that feature a few of the folks participating in that endeavor. The night will showcase talent that participated in Youth United’s yearly talent show last fall. Performers for the evening include 14-year-old vocalists Giana Hidalgo and Vybhav Jagannath, violinist Adam Clark, and The Bucket Brothers—siblings Logan (12) and Casey (9) Valleroy, who play eight instruments between them.
The show happens Saturday, Feb. 2, at Broad Street Cafe at 8 p.m. Admission is free, but donations are encouraged. Broad Street Café itself will be contributing 5% of the night’s sales to the Youth United program. Visit DurhamHabitat.org for info on Youth United and other ways to get involved.
