Bobby Holley to Sing on Roof to “Stop the Bullying”
He walked to Lansing to talk to the Governor and Legislative leaders. He crawled to Marshall and Galesburg, and Saturday, October 27th, he'll be singing on the roof of an Urbandale business to raise awareness and funds to "Stop Bullying Now".
Last year, the Battle Creek entertainer and substitute teacher, approached the late Frankie Zanetti, co-owner of Battle Creek Tile and Mosaic with an idea. Holley wanted to put t-shirts in the hands of every student in area schools. Zanetti made a donation. Former Mayor John Gallagher made one too and others followed. So far, Holley has given away more than 800 t-shirts. The shirts are red, with white lettering, and say "Stop Bullying Now...take a stand...lend a hand."
This Saturday, Bobby Holley will be on the roof of Battle Creek Tile and Mosaic, 1338 West Michigan in Urbandale, from 1 to 5pm. He'll be singing and trying to raise $10,000 to buy more shirts----about 2,500 more shirts. Volunteers will be collecting drive-up cash donations, but there are other ways to help the cause.
Checks may be made out to: Church of Living Water, and may be sent to P.O. Box 2296, Battle Creek, MI 49016.
Holley and his band will be performing Saturday evening at McGonigle's on Emmett Street near Raymond Road. Fans can stop in and leave donations there too.
