‘unCommon Cause’ to go back to the 60s

The theme for this year’s “unCommon Cause” has been set and will focus on the 60s.

Geri Handley, marketing manager for the Columbus Area Arts Council, says that four people in attendance at Woodstock and who now reside in Columbus will head this year’s unCommon Cause, the Arts Council’s largest annual fundraiser. She says that Jesse Brand, Jeff Rhoades, Hutch Schumaker and Warren Ward will serve as co-chairs and help recreate the excitement and energy of that decade. Handley says that the event, called “The 60s Experience: from Mods to Motown, Buzz Cuts to Bellbottoms” is scheduled for Saturday, October 22 at The Commons.

Handley says that proceeds from unCommon Cause allow the Columbus Area Arts Council to enhance the quality of life in the community by stimulating interest in art and fostering creativity.
