Earth Calendar for June 15th and 16th
Louisville 2012 Riverfest Music Festival to benefit EDGE Outreach More than 10 local bands and performing artists will donate their time to entertain attendees of the 2012 Riverfest Music Festival, where all proceeds from ticket sales will benefit Louisville-based EDGE Outreach and their mission to save lives around the world by providing safe drinking water to developing communities and disaster environments.EDGE Outreach is a Louisville based 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to bring clean drinking water to developing communities and disaster environments around the world. They work every day to put an end to the global water crisis by training and empowering ordinary people to provide safe and sustainable water, sanitation, health, and hygiene solutions in their own communities.Since 2001, EDGE has impacted the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in more than 23 countries, including Haiti, Kenya, India, Dominican Republic, and Costa Rica. When EDGE staff and volunteers travel to a developing community to build training centers and install purification systems, they also teach nationals how to diagnose their water problems, operate the purification system, repair broken hand pumps, and educate them on effective health and hygiene practices. The Riverfest stage sits right on the Ohio riverbank about 2.5 miles upriver from 12-mile Island, allowing the area boating community to beach or anchor out for the day and enjoy the festivities. Friday, June 29th and Saturday, June 30th. Attendees of the family-friendly event are invited to bring lawn chairs, blankets and coolers.
