“The community’s response to last year’s show was overwhelming — many had no idea that SBCC’s music program was so extraordinary. We are excited to be returning to the Lobero and grateful to Michael McDonald and all the performers, who are once again generously donating their time and talents for this special evening,” said Geoff Green, CEO of SBCC Foundation.
