BENEFITING: MEMPHIS URBAN LEAGUE INC
EVENT DATE: Apr 13, 2013
When we (Eric & Lori) united on 10.6.12, it was a combustion of creative energy that resulted. Our many novel ideas came together as one and in return we realized we wanted to just do something great in our community. The Result: a family fund, called the Eric & Lori Robertson Fund, aimed at financially supporting young, innovation social entrepreneurs to make Memphis phenomenal - yes PHENOMENAL!
We decided to offer up two of the most significant days in history - our birthdays and host a birthday fundraiser on the date smack, dab in the middle of those historic dates - April 13, 2013.
We played with a number of ideals for this "oh so cool" party, and we decided on hosting an event, unlike any other seen in the city we call home, that uniquely highlighted one of the areas we hope to support through this fund - the arts!
The event, FUSION: Muse, Movement & Music, will showcase the artistic talent of local young adults in the genres of visual and film art, dance, a little bite of fashion and but of course music! FUSION will be hosted in the historic neighborhood of Soulsville U.S.A. , also referred to as Upper South Memphis, but more commonly known as South Memphis - North ;).
