Flower Booking started fifteen years ago, and at their tenth anniversary the company hosted a series of concerts at Chicago’s Metro. The event was a fundraiser and 100% of ticket sales ($18,000 total) went to P.L.A.Y. (Possibilities in Life: Art For Youth). Now, at the fifteen-year mark, Flower Booking plans on lending a helpful hand again. The goal is to raise $50,000 or more for P.L.A.Y. So bring out your checkbooks, come see some rock, and do your part to help bring art and music classes to abused kids in the Chicago area foster care centers.
