A Musical Benefit for David Wilbur

Mosley Street Melodrama Presents

A Musical Benefit for David Wilbur, a Friend and former Flyers coach.

David Wilbur, our wonderful friend and colleague, has been struggling with critical health issues the past couple years. He is on the double transplant list for a kidney and liver at KU Medical Center and is battling diabetes and osteoporosis. These conditions have forced David to retire from his job at Ketch and from volunteering as a coach with his beloved athletes with the Air Capital Flyers.

Due to increasing medical cost, prescriptions, travel expenses to and from KC, and changes in the insurance; David has fallen on hard times financially.

His theatre friends have decided to join together for a once in a liftime performance on Sunday, May 17th at 7:00 p.m. (Doors open at 6:00 p.m)

Tickets are $25.00 (Donated to Mr. Wilbur)

Silent auction before the show

Cash Bar Available

Please call 316-263-0222 for Tickets.
