Connecticut funk-fusion band, Kung Fu, aides Toys for Tots as they gear-up for a heartfelt livestream tomorrow, December 19, 2020. Proceeds will go to Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital.
Kung Fu and Toys For Tots make a heart-warming combo. The benefit has become a cherished tradition, annually held and Toad’s Place, a landmark venue in the Connecticut music scene. The venue has collected tens of thousands of dollars worth of toys for kids at their annual sold out shows.
The band improvised this year, going virtual. Tomorrow, The Warehouse, Fairfield Theatre Company’s 640-capacity, industrial and state of the art venue will host the livestream for its tenth consecutive year. The benefit continues to embody a sense of giving and selflessness around the holidays, as the band pulls out all the stops for the hometown celebration to benefit those less fortunate.
If you have ever been to Fairfield Theatre Company, or met Kung Fu, both have a heartwarming persona, making it the perfect matchup for Toys for Tots. Locals flock the venue as is, the band, deeply rooted in their community.
We are sending love to Kung Fu, The Warehouse @ FTC and all of you who have continually showed your support during the holidays, especially this year. The livestream is courtesy of MKDevo, with lights by Matt Calabrese. Kung Fu will be donating 33% of the total proceeds to the Yale New Haven Children’s Hospital at 1 Park St, New Haven, CT.
