We’re closing the alley again for the Second Annual “Rally in the Alley”: a festival with live music, craft beers, cocktails, and delicious food from 44 Canteen! Join us! 

Proceeds will go to Global First Responder (GFR). GFR is an international medical relief organization that provides not only medical care but health education and community development. GFR also acts as a global platform/network that both raises awareness of the need for global assistance and facilitates the ease of the volunteer process in the hopes of getting more individuals involved in this work.

More details for the party to come! Stay tuned for upcoming band announcements and more!
