Recently coming out with a country song, which was a little bit odd, but maybe it wasn't I just don't really know her that well, but I'm excited. I loved Hannah some on dancing with the stars like I was so happy to have her because I was so upset when her Susan ended I. Think she'll be entertaining. I think she's going to have a hard time like getting out of her like sarcastic like place things off type of personality because I watch it a lot I feel like that happens to a lot of people and you feel so bad because you know, they can do it, but also. It seems like she has been wanting to be on it for a very long time yet, so maybe she will take it seriously. I don't know or like. Put a really good effort in. Yeah, she's a dancer like cheesy. Before she got on, the show was a dance teacher, and like okay, then yes, she's fine. She's GonNa. Kill it. Yeah, I. Do agree though she is often released. Are Cass Tech? Like I do think there is an element of the show where you have to be vulnerable and like when you're choosing those like emotional like pieces like I do agree that like she does kind of have like A. While up in that sense, but basically her whole like postseason, all of the bachelor leads especially were being asked to come on dancing with the stars. When she came off of her, she was like this makes total sense because I dance and like I would love to have this opportunity. BET, basically. They just said like she couldn't. It was like partner per contractors umping at so odd. It's so weird, so she's kind of had this like back and forth feud with ABC about dancing with the stars, and she was even kind of. Of like blacklisted from Michaud there's always like the people that come back to give advice and stuff like that like I don't think she was often like included because she would like openly. Tell like in interviews on twitter like they basically said no and I think it's like a double standard, so it was like actually really nice. I actually was quite excited that she got this opportunity, and like I'm usually like super like emotional about these types of things. Yeah I feel like one of Hannah Brown's biggest issues on the show was. That she like obviously knew how to perform like she's a pageant girl, like she gets how to give stage presence, but she wasn't able to be vulnerable and they would like. Give her so much shit for it and so I. If anything. I think that's work in will struggle. But I do think that if she was a dancer than she's going to be totally fine, shall she like very well could win it then yeah I feel like a lot of people that have like a little bit of background in like musical theater or dance like are the ones that like always succeed. Yeah, OH, my Gosh! The things I would do to be cast on that show also because I can't dance, and I think that it would really improve me as a dancer. Yeah literally. Feel that. another thing that happened on Bachelor. Greatest of all time was Kaelin. Dean were interviewed and they said that they like had calmest rings, and we're basically married without like a legal ceremony. What were your thoughts on that? So I think beans a little bit of a Weirdo for that like why he like obviously. You have to know that Caitlin is just like agreeing to that thing because that's what dean wants like she would. Thousand was a pageant queen. Also like you know, she wants to put on a wedding dress. You know she wants to have a full ass wedding, but like. I think he's so weird for that, but at the same time I think they're so cute, so I'm just happy that they're like committing to. Yeah I totally agree I. Don't WanNa, make that assumption, but like even just the way that her like looks and wardrobe and south have changed since dating Dina a wild like even during her interview for this TV show. She was like very light makeup. If any very natural hair, just like in like a sweater, where like before it was like full ten veneers, long hair like the works, right? So I, just I don't know it's. It's such a transformation, and it just seems like such laughed. Turn that I'm like. Yeah, not expected at all like I was really like. I'm a big fan of like watching them on instagram like watching everything. They're doing just because I really was rooting for them throughout paradise but. It really is funny like her being rock climber now like it is wild to see the change that she has made. Versus her on Colton season. I know and I just WanNa know like. Was this your kind of more natural state, but like maybe like her parents. Her family wanted her to do pageants or lake is. Did she really change for this guy because he's like? So cute and funny, and so like I just WanNa, know like what is up and she also i. mean she very well could just be like evolving in his like.

"All the basics at Cass tech good sanitation but at the same time be happy in your freedom and your liberty and understand that there are certain parameters I I get that we understand that wash your hands do the basics right but think about those who gave everything gave their lives so that we could be free enough to sometimes do dumb things we're in a nation that allows the good the bad the ugly and allows us to stay we we have the freedom unless I missed the memo today on this Monday Memorial Day we have the freedom to to make choices and yes sometimes we make dumb choices based on what that's America your doctor Fauci said on Friday Hey we did open the economy up faster this could get ugly well welcome to the party doctor that was about about a month ago been nice if you said that but think about those who sacrifice I think are two individuals in particular one was John did here who is a brother my friend Jim back in Illinois when I was growing up I remember that day and I was I was young sh clearly young man but I remember when when John went off to Vietnam didn't come back I remember what they did the whole fabric of actually the community and then not that I knew him but my mom told me about my uncle Carl he's back up to be a great uncle or grandpa coal who a week before the war ended got killed in a tank in Europe those are the people who did right down to the wire in that case hit there was about toasty was brought toast in the bunker he gave his all as so many else somebody others dead so that we could be free and freedom doesn't mean we wait for the nanny state to tell us what we can and can't do next right so enjoy that appreciate that even in these times of all these restrictions Israel six hundred kogo Kevin Hellman is joining us he is president of SDS events USA's founder San Diego music foundation founder and promoter San Diego music awards former publisher San Diego city beat and Kevin J. E. A. about the opening the economy and what it could to shutters shutters we're gonna get into this now and I know the attorneys will get busy in the months and probably years ahead on this but how you doing and what do you with all these events that are on hold the kind of thing you do for your living is is parked in this this code red to near purgatory here so how are you and how you doing purgatory is about the best scheduled and rescheduled more events than I ever have that's about all we can do my income is gone from living comfortably to zero and unless I want to go try to find another line of work I don't have to wait it out I'm fortunate that my wife has a has a job in the still working and she is an essential jobs that is a more essential is the back up in the states out so yeah all sorts of worker to continuing to work but you know my living is going to zero I have offices here and in New Orleans and I can't do anything in either so we're just sitting back and waiting so I'm I'm glad to see things starting to open up you know a little quicker than we probably expected wait three weeks ago well I think that's going to really speed up here because the governor feels it and and and I know this about this governor he doesn't like when people are ticked off Adam and when he feels the heat he tends to he tends to shift and there's also the political thing there were he's hoping to get some kind of a federal bailout as many of these state governors are especially in blue states were then you can say well give us a whole bunch of money from the federal level and then we'll just to replicate all of our other stuff that goes back twenty thirty years in terms of your mistakes at the state level so if you know this will be a long wait to get to that point but this whole idea as well yeah great your record to have money taken away either and if he doesn't do what Washington says he's gonna lose money right that's actually right yeah it's it's very difficult both ways but now we're to the point where we start seeing some states Arizona Utah Florida Georgia as I mentioned there there are many that are opening up faster than California and you've got a plan ahead I know what you're doing in the events business and and music and so forth as a you know a big acts and so forth they're they're working years out I mean I don't know how you feel that you get into who's got who has deposits of white gets refunded to mean that you had to be clean and you're probably one hoarding the Advil over the last several weeks I'm guessing right well yeah I mean literally the last two weeks a little refunding tickets and tickets for tickets or more tickets now I'm I'm down to one event that still on an and one is that the moral tomorrow will actually announce it formally but see the the music awards we're gonna do it virtually because we want to honor the local musicians and honestly these people can't work either this way we can raise the money and hopefully help some of them so what's is like we talk about the restaurants restaurant owners will talk to Richard Walker junior from Richard Walker's pancake house after the bottom of the hour they they have a bunch of restaurants are about to open a new one and all this does this hit but you know the governor will sometimes say cavalierly that well we'll open up and hear the new protocols and they'll have twenty five or fifty percent or whatever the thing is at the at the time this idea of what concerts look like what events look like and how cozy people get next to each other and you know there's there's so many new things that we don't even know about yet that I'm sure come into play with what you do as an event promoter so what what are you thinking some of this will look like as we move forward at least in the transition here okay all right I really am unclear if the big concert I might yes is it suppose we're talking about the amphitheater in Chula Vista that's a twenty thousand capacity venue there's you know no reason they couldn't do three thousand you know capacity with certain action I think a lot of the acts of the ones that are going to have to give you're not going to see you know give ME Barca playing into a disco because he commands a dollar and you know that's just the way it is yeah so maybe eccentric that's interesting so the performers are gonna have to rethink I'm sure they are yeah that their numbers for at least for a season or two are going to be vastly different if you're playing an arena that can Max out at twenty thousand and is now three that's exactly right you know they they're they're not gonna be able to toward make the same numbers that they did before I mean who knows I mean as an example I canceled event that was scheduled for August first and I cancel that not because I don't think we'll be able to do it we actually probably would get the go ahead with whatever the capacity but there's so many people that are still afraid to go out we as a promoter you can't take that chance to lose a lot of money about money we have currently Kevin Hellman with us says San Diego event promoter and you feel like we needed to shut everything down the way we shut it down based on your perspective well I don't know I'm going both ways on this we probably didn't need to do something yeah but I also think that that what we're doing now could have been done a month earlier it's it's really hard to say I have had the same discussion with so many people I mean I went to a gathering yesterday with about fifteen people in a way where you went to well this is confessional nine you went to a gathering bad word to use I'm sure yes gatherings and this is for both new nobody's in the county supervisors update for you all socially distanced wait wait wait host resistance yes use the mask but we were we were six feet away from one another you know it was just it was very close friends it's not you know a group of whoever's I mean I've seen some of the pictures of the beaches on the east coast I'm just bewildered that the authorities are letting it get to that well let's remember in defense a I grew up back in that I've been in San Diego for decades here but growing up back there they also factory and the fact they've been cooped up since winter and this this happened you know the shutdown happened in March this is still the I'm going mad in the in the cabin during that time I have to get out I'll cut them some slack for being exuberant okay except for the knuckle heads are gone just do that because they think it's fun but yeah well it might have been a little too exuberant SPSS initial consult some of those pieces of something about South Carolina I mean there are people improper people on top of people which may be forget code that might be too busy to begin with that's right and there's there's occupancy issues and so forth I let's remember this isn't the only disease out there hello can I get a witness there's plenty of that with various levels as well so this idea of I may if there's certain places I don't know about you but I've always wipe down things that when I'm on an airline or don't you get into a concert situation or or whatever you just know where the germs are I don't exactly go Hey I'm in an elevator I think I'll just put my tongue on all the I I'll I'll I'll select the floor with my tongue I mean there's certain common sense things you don't do right so I don't know if we need the nanny state to tell us that but maybe some people do but that a majority of people don't need that well it's true let me know looked at this nobody likes wearing a mask there's nobody that likes it in their house you know but I think right now maybe wearing a mask at a grocery store you know you didn't have a good experience today it was so warm and cozy on the eighty something degree there's lovely wonderful horrible but given given where we are is that police will I'd rather be outside wearing a mask stuck to my house yeah that's right I would do that and I do I do that to as necessary I don't drive around my own car which is my own space with the recycled beyond Iran and all that it's not necessary to wear a mask in my own car to protect me from what to just I mean there's a whole bunch of other unintended consequences of that but if I get into a place I go to the post office as a whole bunch of people in line and yeah I get that in fact that's probably good advice anytime not just during during this so what do you think the San Diego events picture Kevin Hellman will look like let's say a year from now but let's let's say we come out of this over the next to her yeah you're from now we'll be back to normal and I mean real normal normal normal I did do it I think it's gonna take a little time to get there I think when I say get back to normal it's convincing the people they're afraid to go out right now that it is safe to go out you could cut the flu in the house of blues you know two years ago sure yeah you know so I do think a year from now we'll be close to back to normal and I think when the NFL season starts but they try to fill up stadiums which they're gonna do that's going to convince a lot of people okay it's not you know it it's half of one percent if you're eighty years old you might want to stay home yeah that's right so the charges may be in a great spot they have been drawing a big crowd anyway so that might just be easier for them to to scale it down Kevin Hellman appreciated to hang in there and hopefully things turn around for the better sooner rather than later we're all hoping that and research check out what we're going to back up and running and and and I mean that was with the the theaters in town the concert venues I mean everybody we all pull together it's really a.

"I'm Jeff Priscilla this is anything is possible and we're talking a pastor Chris Brooks the senior pastor of Woodside Bible church pastor welcome a real honor to have this is such an honor to be here Jack so so privileged to be here and to welcome all of my friends throughout the metro Detroit area can you start by leaving us an opening for not be happy to do so father thank you for life thank you for the good gifts you give of hope and forgiveness and love and restoration we thank you for this season we pray that there will be no heavy heart the lord they each one would know the joy of your presence the friendship of others in the hope that you have for our future blesses now in Christ's name we pray amen you grew up in Detroit Chris Brooks are there talked to us about your childhood and your mom and your dad you know I was born into a Christian home and I'm grateful for it dad was a teacher at one of the historic high schools here and in the Detroit area Cass tech high school many have graduated from Cass tech and going on to do phenomenal things my dad taught there for twenty seven good years in the old building on the sixth floor way in students have to run their way up to class with just a few minutes to spare mom was in the business world shoes in telecom when telecom was all the rage throughout the eighties and nineties and so I'm kind of the product Jack of a school teacher and a business woman and from that developed a passion myself for for business developed a passion myself for education and I think that's what led me into pastore ministries but my childhood alive many Detroit kids was a phenomenal childhood we didn't have much growing up but we have one another and we enjoyed the community and neighborhood that we lived in we were on the west side of your choice school craft and evergreen area is where we lived and god got was good unfortunately when I was young appearance like many others went through a divorce but you know I had a unique thing Jack even though mom and dad went through a divorce they never spoke ill of each other and I think that was an important part of my childhood because it allowed me to be able to appreciate both of them without having any sense of cynicism as I got older I understood more of the narrative but I will say that I'm grateful that I was able to have a relationship that was strong with both mom and dad you surrender your life to Christ at age thirteen I did why and how so you know it's interesting question I as I say I was raised in a Christian family but I didn't grow up without my all doubts I have plenty of doubts and questions about god in about Christianity about morality how can this thing be true where so much evil is suffering in the world how can this be true when there's so many other religions in the world I remember being in high school at the time I went to high school and I was twelve and it's thirteen as a sophomore I had an English professor who was an open agnostic the question everything and it was a Greek mythology class and you know how classrooms are set up to teachers a sage on the stage he is the one who everyone has to respect and so what he says is true and he question Christianity and so did die and someone and that to this day I can't remember who gave me a little book from Josh McDowell it's called more than a carpenter and I read that book twice over and he gave me answers to the questions that existed in the young man's heart you gave me reasons to believe that Christ was worth following also was privileged to be able to at that time be attending the church with my mom in the youth ministry where I had a real encounter with the living Christ and so my life has been transformed since all right if you started high school at twelve you graduated in fifteen and while your high school you were sharing your faith you were already evangelizing to your eighteen year old classmates yeah well I was passionate now stressing about price from the moment that I met him and begin to share Christ with friends family members loved ones now what's interesting and people shouldn't be surprise when this happened the initial response was was skeptical people wondered suspicious of whether or not this type of change of heart was real and I lost friends before our game them but I have friends that came back and I'm grateful for that cool story is is that I actually came to Christ at Disney world Jack it was on a family vacation I've been reading the Joshua dial but going to youth ministry and laid on a pull out couch and hotel time share at Disney world Jess off property all of it came together for me and lay next to me in that pull out couch bed was my older brother and he saw me get on my knees on the side of the bed and said what's going on last year Christ with him my older brother became my first convert to this day we serve Christ together serve our community as faithfully as we can but high school was a good time for me to share my faith how was it you chose a vocation to be a minister you know that came after I spent time professionally in the financial services industry but I think that it really boiled down to this for me both my love for Christ and my observation of how best to impact our community in a positive way you know growing up in Detroit one of the things that's been true since the civil rights here even prior to visit churches been the epicenter for our community Hey still is true today it's where so many in our communities are when they need medical advice or financial advice or legal advice it's all there I saw that through the charge we could do the maximum good but also still to this day I believe the greatest decision a person can make is to have a real relationship with Christ themselves because of those two passions that I.

Today is an awesome day that for for all of the educators for all of the administrators for all the teachers students and families you should be kind of getting back to the rhythm of the second week of school so to all of you all that are in the grind in the hustle of reacclimating yourself to your school schedule and no you're probably sleepy around this time but tonight we have an amazing thing in an awesome guest someone who was out there a mover and shaker a big moneymaker the one who's out here challenging and shifting cultural norms is in and being able to bring a new narrative to what it is to be cool and smart being able to put the fun back into it and also. I know if you see his face ace on our facebook. Live you recognize his face. You probably shined up some Chuck Taylors in made it happen down supporting a great cost. Oh we got my A. One since day they want kate is in the house. She lifted up her foot. She got her chuck. T's always all right so tonight I welcome to the show drawing-board nation welcomes Jason Appaling welcome to the show show brother. Hey man it's good to see you absolutely absolutely so before we jump into all of the great content that we're going to talk about tonight man. I remember the first time meeting eating you. was win. Eric Marcus had invited me we were in Southfield to a meeting with Black United Fund our Kim Donaldson Listen Shoutout to Mr d in all of the buff connects and everybody making a difference out there with surrounding that particular organization man it was a lot of innovative thinkers some of the great thought leaders that we see now that are doing some really big things and I listened to you talk. You were talking about like that. When I heard you of their you were talking about mentorship and when you first started out you know how you were throwing parties and and man listen then you got into a connecting party and a purpose right so man when when I heard you say that I was listening. I was like okay cool. He took some the Nettie enjoyed doing that. It was good. It was a great time for people to walk me through that process man. How did you end up. How did you start doing this so I could basically break it down in a funny. I just left if Mr Donaldson at buff so one of my mentors Darren Buffington Derome Buffington I always do club parties and social events and I remember remember was one of the my last events I was doing at the Whitney so I used to do every Friday at the Whitney downtown Detroit and was like Hey Jason you have this audience now. It's time to evolve of and think about how can you take this audience and drive them to something. That's more associated with more social impact cool to party. You know have some booze and spirits have a little the form but as we start to mature and get older used at saying consumer base in now we can drive things that's GonNa move the community for be more social impactful so once he said that and usually I'm a good listener when my mentors they tell me do stuff. I I kinda just do I started to think about that and then from there that's how I got involved in buff because they they started buff connect. We all started to come to buff connect and that's where I met Mr Donaldson because Mr D. was Derome Buffington mentor so Mr D. is like my mentor. Tour squared. That's happened connected those rights okay so no no Buffington awesome things that he's doing so you know we kind of follow his lead in that respect and and his wife is doing great so doing it at a high level so when and I got a chance to also hear you speak one of the things that you were touching on is like leveraging the younger voice right. Bring allowing the you know. How does the younger voice get to the table. a impact embrace some of the U. Notre not almost traditional ideas but some of the ideas that worked but then also be able to reserved voice at the table and I've seen you do that man like with Tux and Chuck Right. Take me to like create the experience where we man so how how do you in scruggs. Let's get together man and decide that you're going to make this half so me and Byron. I mean we're both Scorpio's. My birthday is November tenth. His eighteenth in November and we we always fun is our lifeline every I mean that's my lane like if if I had a limited budget on how people can have a great time. I feel like that would be the best job in world. I'm all about having fun. You work hard play hard so me and a barn. We've always wanted to do an event to celebrate our birthdays which originally started as a birthday party but we always wanted to tied at social impact that their own Buffington was always telling us about like hey. We're getting older. How are you going to impact your community. How are you going to be more philanthropic. You know that's that's where the evolution of of a lot of party promoter should go because you already have the audience and as we get older we don't. Stop Party and we just do it in more philanthropic ways as raising money for charity. There's always gonNA be at the end of the day. Vince don't stop the whole business. I don't know how much money is raised doing events but I'm sure it's a multimillion. Maybe billion dollar the industry right right so from there we was like Okay Byron was saying. Hey I want in when he got married him and his wife Kelly got married his groomsmen wore orch Taylor's so they were to Tuxedos and Chuck Taylor so that's where the idea of talks in Chuck's came from and I just put a name together. He was like yeah I wanNA wear Tuxedos and chuck so a rhyme toxins John. Wall something that's GonNa stick quick and people could just you know it can resonate and you can build branding behind it so that's what we came up with. In the first year was really it was just it was still in birthday party mole but we did donate pro- portions are proceeds to a nonprofit of someone that we knew and they're starting to grow and then it took going its own life and really we separated our birthdays outside of it and tucks jokes became the event that you know today absolutely no and I I wondered if you knew I but there is a toxin chuck's happening in Indianapolis. Did you right so the funny thing about it. Is We have a trademark on the name toxin trucks but a lot of times what what we don't do. Is You know I mean we can send cease indices cease and desist letters to people but I mean it's not really worth the hassle. I mean when you got a good product. People are GonNa copy and this may copied and Phoenix has been competent. Milwaukee has been copying Indianapolis copy multiple places and we see a a lot of our constituency in our supporters. They'll show it. I mean instagram. You see everything right. You can just hash tag toxins jokes. You'll see different types of chuck's that you know. Kinda copied us us but like you say people are doing it on a small level. Nina doing own level big enough. I'm really I was really concerned about like. Let's say a converse came in and they wanted to do one. You know I'm more the the big corporations that kind of wipe you out and the funny thing about it. We've been reaching out to converse the partner for the last a couple of years. We also partnered with them. I think in the malls and we give people discounts and stuff like that but I actually been in touch with the CFO of converse and trying to really bring him on board and say hey. Let's make this a multi city national type things where we'll do toxin chuck's intensity tour raise money and be more impactful folding they will actually pay. Maybe a celebrity to do that because every year when we have it like sales spike. Lee You know the most most people we had we had twelve runner people a couple of years back at MGM and you probably we counted eight nine. Hundred people weren't Chuck's and you're not gonNA come out with opere Chuck's. You'RE GONNA go buy your new pair right right especially as you start to bedazzle them and make them funky and we're doing chuck Taylor. You know contests and what have you so we drive product. We just need to get converse on board so demand listen. I I would purchase a pair. There was a pair of J. APP. You know drugs no or be scruggs for the event or like the limited limited edition Let's say twenty twenty bucks in Chuck's Rhino Shoe came. I will rock a shoe like what we need it. We need to converse do a coup smart. Chuck Okay Aku Smart Inc Chuck so that's something that we have to you know. Maybe we have to explore and see how we can do that. Okay Yeah Yeah that that event. I got a chance to come and man what I loved about it. It was so many diverse professionals right it was you know some of the senior level professionals younger people oh Christ some of the people from the hood it was just it was such a diverse experience man had an excellent time funding one of my homeboys from for Wing Indiana. Janna moved up here okay and he hadn't been able to. We didn't connect you know since I've been up here but I was Tux chunks and then he was there so I was like I saw one of my I childhood friend right right. You know we reconnected Chuck's myself. You know continued at Great Work and you mentioned your organization Cool Smart Right Yeah Yeah so like I am all about the experience right so either things where you had like this. He piffle any more graduate gradual increase as far as social impact back what you wanted to do but when we talk this was probably about two or three years ago we were talking about. you know how you had to put the fun back back in two right. You know kids being able to understand you. Do I mean like you say as we get older and we want to give back to the community but nowadays it it has to be a fun element like when you even look at you know we're going through. Mr Donaldson's organization will buff. That's a fifty next year will be the fiftieth anniversary but when you naturally actually US millennials or I don't know if you call depending on your age group. I'm thirty nine this year in November so I don't know where I fall. I probably got one foot in the millennium the living room and one full generation wire ex you know or Z. I don't know you know they just come up. You know every every year. Just pick a letter right. We're X. and millennials. I'll be thirty seven this year. Okay yeah and so it was like we're over millennia right but younger like genetics actually so from that standpoint when you look at traditionally how fund raisers go from our perspective. They're boring right you know and I feel like you can still still be philanthropic and have social impact but there can be entertainment. Were you walk away from that event and you actually enjoy yourself so combining the two. You and I think that's what it took to get us. Young folks involve as we don't WANNA. Go to your normal fundraiser where you're sitting down at a table. You know you have your the chicken and peas and whatever you know and you WanNa you. WanNa have entertainment. You WanNA walk away. Say Okay. I contributed to this nonprofits mission statement but also had a good time hi. It's all about what us like. I say fun being our lifeline. Everything has to be infused with fun. Even if it's educational if you know going going out we're cleaning up the community whatever we have to have a fun element to it because that's what we that's just basically what we live by. Yes so when I'm sitting here man. I'm always thinking ah okay if I had to package. It and I'm sure that you know you already have some coin but I'm thinking like man I would. It would be like the threes of like your fundraising right so it has to be engaging has been entertaining and then there has to be an enlightenment element or you know something that you learned within the process of that and you know when you're having fun. You're you're more. We're open or or APP to make a decision to give great. You are yeah. Hey even the worst. God loves cheerful. Giver Right so when I got to have fun on you gotTa you know you got whether it's you turning up getting league drunk. You know that's all those Jennifer Generations or if you're off off the hook off the chain whatever your phrase is i. This is a great way to do it nine. You were also talking about partnering with some schools in order to bring that that elemental cool smart to the schools yeah so definitely so Byron Sucks and he's my partner Co founder. He actually went to Cass Tech. He's a CASS Columbia of one thousand nine Hundred Nine C. T. My wife is ninety six right yes so there's a group within cast call. Thi Jin's so what we do is we hook up with with that group and it's basically just bring in you know nonprofit one. Oh one to a high schooler because that's something I didn't have and I know a lot of schools are having a charitable notable arm or Cheddar charitable curriculum now in elementary middle school to teach kids.
