Katy, TEXAS – Katy Visual & Performing Arts Center (KVPAC) organized a benefit on Friday, April 29 at 7:00pm at KVPAC’s main location on South Mason Road, to help local victims of the recent flooding. The special performance included a musical variety show titled Call It Sunshine, showcasing some of Katy’s most musically talented residents. All proceeds raised from the event were sent directly to Katy Christian Ministries (KCM), as Katy families have turned to them for support in times of need.

Recent rain storms caused such severe flooding that both Harris and Fort Bend counties (among others) were declared a state of disaster by the governor. Many homes took in water and even more are left without power. In conjunction with the benefit performance, KVPAC has also organized a Restaurant Gift Card Drive for KCM so families without power or access to their flooded kitchens can take their families out for a hot meal. We are encouraging the general public to donate restaurant gift cards. Gift cards can be dropped off at KVPAC during business hours Monday through Friday, 8:30am to 7:00pm, or an ear-marked donation can be made on-line at www.kvpac.org at any time.
