WHITE MASK EVENT

Trader was approached by Kat Vargas, who manages many live singers, about an event one of her performers would like to do for RFL.  Kat immediately thought of the Rockers and would not consider any other team.

FLY is a classic violinist from Turkey. Fly has organized an event called White Mask specifically to fundraise for charities. She is going to do her next big event for the Relay Rockers on April 11.

We will have more info at next meeting.
