Choir for Hire
Friday-Monday’s in December
Whole Foods Market in Troy is seeking local talent to spread cheer this holiday season while helping to feed those in need.  Do you know of any local talent that would like to sing for a great cause?  For every hour a choir sings, Whole Food Market will donate $50 in food to Gleaners Community Food Bank.  Whole Foods Market hopes to have a choir (big or small) in store every weekend in December Friday through Monday.  Please contact Dawn at 248-649-9600 or email dawn.danhausen@wholefoods.com with any questions/suggestions.
