So. Oregon Music Festival looking for help

Medford, Ore., — The Southern Oregon Music Festival is asking for community support tonight.

The festival has been around for 28 years, but it’s in danger of coming to an end.

The non-profit recently lost several major sponsors, now it needs $50,000 dollars by March 1st to continue.

The organization has already raised $27,000 dollars.

“It would be a big loss to the community, it would be a big loss to the economy. In 3 days we bring in from outside over a million dollars in revenue to the Rogue Valley that wouldn’t be here otherwise. So it really effects everyone.” said Larkin Hastings, Director of Operations for the festival.

The organization helps benefit local school’s music programs and refurbishes used instruments.
