Looking for a good cause to support? The LOVE BOMB showcase takes place in Jacksonville on June 6th at 1904 Music Hall featuring top local music and art talent. The benefit will provide supplies to orphans in Uganda.
We spoke with the event’s organizer, Zach Duke, to get some background info on this awesome charity:
Why did you choose this charity? Why does this cause mean so much to you?
I didn’t choose them. They chose me. It’s weird trying to explain because they found me. I thought it was some Nigerian prince scam at first, but after very careful verification (paperwork on kids, medical records, video chat) I started sponsoring the orphanage. They send me receipts for everything they buy.
What is the history behind the event? Is this the first one?
This is the very first event we have organized to directly benefit these kids in Uganda.
How will you be raising money for the charity?
We are selling children’s books, Tuma Upendo shirts (translates to “transmit love” in English from Swahili), and a ton of art.
Tell us about the entertainment.
The artists involved are all experts in their respective trades. We have muralist, painters, sketch artists, spray paint, street art, clean style. A ton of amazing DJs and then some cool acoustic jams.
Also we are getting food catered food which is free, just accepting donations. [entry is also free]

It will be the best night of your life… Guaranteed
