“My children have been musicians from a young age. They always want to perform live, but the opportunities are limited because of age restrictions in many public music venues. I knew that there were lots more kids out there that want to show their talent and grow. This is that opportunity.” stated Poole.
These two business women have organized many events in Saline County and are joining forces for the first time.
“My company works with the CASA team and I’m proud and impressed daily by the way the volunteers help local children who have been put in a situation of abuse or neglect,” stated McFarland.
Other major sponsors for Spotlight Fight are First Electric Cooperative, Ron Jones Insurance Agency, Inc., and HealthCARE Express Bryant. Sponsorship opportunities are still available. To ask about sponsoring or for any other questions, email [email protected].
