Kurt Michael Friese, chef, local food advocate and Johnson County Supervisor, was sadly taken from us in 2018. In order to honor Kurt and to carry forward his work and passions, we are presenting a memorial fundraiser in his name to benefit two local non-profits that Kurt co-founded. Those two groups are Field to Family and Slow Food Heartland. Kurt was also a huge fan of local music so we thought it would be fitting to have a benefit concert with local musicians providing the entertainment. Performing artists are Greg Brown, The Awful Purdies, Dave Zollo and Slewgrass.
