The Spot Update - Partnering with Your Local School

Contributed by Michael Consalo

Thanks to our incredible local sponsors with big hearts, like Barrett & Associates Insurance, Gagnon Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Recover Alaska, Michael C Marketing, Thrive Mat-Su and so many more, The Spot continues to grow! In October, The Spot traveled to nearby Burchell High School!

The night was possible thanks to the staff of Burchell, including Principal Jason Marvel. Burchell opened its doors to The Jerry Wessling Band and Burchell families Friday, October 26th for a couple hours of music, food and fun! Jerry, Mary, and new-comer Pete, filled the room with a great vibe of rock, pop, and even country.

As the night carried on, two youth performers braved their fear of performing and graced the stage with their vocals. The first performance, an acapella version, filled the hall with a calm feeling and warm smiles could be seen everywhere. The second performer crushed a song I’d never heard, from the Lord of The Rings, that is now added to my playlist! As always, the youth performers were great, and I encourage everyone to come out to our next event! Families of Teeland will be seeing us next December 6th and you can stay informed on Facebook, The People’s Paper, Q 99.7, and Instagram, as we travel around the Mat-Su valley.

We would also like to thank our newest sponsor, Knik Pizza! They will be providing us with free pizza for everyone that shows up from January to May, when we go back to The Gathering grounds Café. We would like to thank our other sponsors as well, that include: Matanuska Music, C3, Valley Arts Alliance, Algone Interventional Pain Clinic, and My House! If you would like to perform or have questions, contact Michael C. at (907)203-0621 or find The Spot on Facebook!
