Amid the multiple cancellations and closures the coronavirus pandemic has caused, comedy improv troupe Four Day Weekend is looking to support service industry members surrounding its two locations in Dallas and Fort Worth.
Four Day Weekend, which canceled performances for undetermined length of time as of March 17, is part of the community of both the Lower Greenville neighborhood in Dallas and Fort Worth's Sundance Square. To try to help workers at bars and restaurants in the two areas, they will hold a virtual live comedy show on Facebook Live on Saturday, March 21 at 8 pm.
According to the Facebook event listing, they are putting on the event because "Lowest Greenville in Dallas and Sundance Square in Fort Worth have made Four Day Weekend who we are. As a small business and part of this amazing community, we can't sit back and watch so many of our friends and fellow businesses take such a big hit."
Anyone watching the event is encouraged donate any amount that they can give to gofundme.com/fourday4good. All proceeds will go towards the small businesses in the service industry on Lowest Greenville and Sundance Square.
The troupe is also encouraging viewers to grab some takeout for dinner from one of the local restaurants on Lowest Greenville or Sundance Square, most of which remain open for to-go orders.
