NEED A PA SYSTEM?
Tomm Williams, of Williams Sound & Stage, is now offering free use of a small PA system to charity events as a community service. If you are having a dinner/fundraiser for a family going through a hard time or tragedy, the PA system would be available for that.
Williams says, "It's not meant for organizations having a dinner/raffle, I just want to give back to those in need (during a crisis in their life), and if having a PA there to help raise funds would help, then that's what it's for."
You can reach Tomm at 260-3138 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
