I can’t even begin to express how excited I am for this project. Some of Provo’s most talented artists along with our in-house creative team have volunteered their time and talent to create a Christmas album featuring local artists and downtown businesses.
The plan is to release a series of music videos on social media starting Monday, December 1. In addition, a CD has been produced and will be sold at participating downtown businesses for $10. Thanks to some generous donations (still looking for more) with 100% of the proceeds being donated to our local United Way’s Sub for Santa program!
Everyone that has heard about this project has jumped in with both feet to help. In just a very few short days this entire project has been put together by a very small group of dedicated Provo City Employees, talented artists and building owners in our downtown.
How can you help? Buy a CD, buy a lot of CDs, spread the word on social media using #ProvoChristmas and tagging @ProvoCity or donate a few dollars to help us cover the production costs.
You can download the entire album today by pre-ordering the CD online at Provo.org/subforsanta. You will receive the CD’s around December 8th. After the 8th You can get yours at Provo’s 311 desk (351 West Center), Utah Valley Chamber Office (111 S University Ave), Velour, 100 Block, Unhinged, Foxglove, Sodalicious, or Los Hermanos. *Any interested Provo businesses can sell the Christmas album in their store. If you would like to be added to the list, send me an email.
All the on-site locations will be accepting cash-only (we’re trying to make it as simple as possible for accounting purposes). Our goal is to raise $20,000 for the United Way which will help hundreds of less-fortunate families in our Valley.
My sincere thanks so many that have been part of this effort.
