An Evening with Pfund

Three Great Performances. One Goal: Connection!

As we continue with Shelter in Place directives and establish new ways to communicate and spend time together, Pfund Foundation would like to invite you to spend some time with us, and a few of our friends. We will be hosting three virtual performances sure to create connection while maintaining social distancing. Whether open or closed we are always here to support. We’ve done so through scholarships, through COVID rapid release funds, and now through a bit of entertainment to lift your spirits. Join us May 13th, 20th and 27th, and let’s laugh, enjoy great music, and appreciate life.
