Several of the performers were MWI grads including Joel Martin, Steve Luxton (Sunday Sounds Good) and Sean Andrews (Still Avenue).

Every part of this event was run by our students. They organized and promoted the event, set-up the equipment, stage managed, and operated the sound and lighting equipment.
All funds raised at this event were once again donated to Friends of We Care; a national organization that has been sending physically disabled children to specialized summer camps for over 26 years.
