(Beaver Dam) Musicians United To End Displacement or the MUTED Festival returns this Saturday to Beaver Dam. The fundraiser aims to raise money and awareness for those who find themselves without a place to call home. Proceeds go towards the New Beginnings Homeless Shelter of Dodge County, a non-profit that operates a family and women’s shelter as well as finds accommodations for homeless and displaced men.
President of the New Beginnings Homeless Shelter Board of Directors Sue Benter says there will be several musical acts throughout the event. She says Ivory Tower will play from 12:30pm to 4:30pm while BA Blues Band performs from 5 to 8pm.
The Board of Directors Vice President Cassandra Schmidt says there will be plenty of other activities to take part in. She says there will be food including brats, hot dogs, hamburgers, and baked goods. Schmidt adds that there will be a number of vendors on hand as well, a beer tent, raffles, and a cash drawing.
There’s also a bounce house, a duck pull, face painting, and WBEV’s own Justin “the Ninja” Wylesky will be in the dunk tank. The fundraiser begins Saturday at 12pm at Swan Park and goes until 9pm.
