Underneath the Purple Rain Fundraiser for DSI

Today would have been Prince’s 60th birthday; break out your ruffled shirt and eyeliner and join us in celebrating this musical legend!

We love Prince’s “Purple Rain” message about love & faith conquering chaos. Our hometown has had it’s share of chaos lately. We believe that a strong downtown will make the Springfield area stronger. All proceeds from this event will go toward our mission of revitalizing the historic downtown and, by association strengthening our whole community. Besides, what greater way is there to enjoy the early-summer evening than partying “Like it’s 1999?” Please plan on attending and supporting this event by clicking on the link below to purchase your tickets.
