On this week's episode of the Eight One Sixty, it’s all about Thundergong 2020! This is the 4th annual event and it is a massive fundraiser for a great KC-based charity called Steps Of Faith Foundation. We’ll be joined via Zoom by Billy Brimblecom, Jr., the executive director of Steps of Faith and along with Jason Sudeikis, a co-founder of Thundergong. The charity works with people who are uninsured or underinsured to help them get prosthetics and they work with people to get back to living a more full life.
Since 2017, Thundergong has raised nearly $850,000 for Steps of Faith, helping provide prosthetics to more than 400 individuals. Each year the event hosts an A-List roster of guests, musicians and comedians, but this year they have knocked it out of the park — they even landed a 007!
Thundergong is happening this Saturday, Nov. 14 at 7 p.m. streaming for FREE at Thundergong.org! There are also amazing raffles, great merch, and so many surprises.
We'll talk all about the event and hear about the performers and guest appearances. Including two brand new guests we can’t even announce yet, one of which sold out Sandstone in the past.
