Dayton Ohio was one of the three towns that were hit by mass shootings in the last month. Some stars are trying to find ways to give to those grieving communities other than just the usual “thoughts and prayers”. Recently Lady Gaga donated money to the schools in all three towns.
Dave Chappelle is giving the town of Dayton Ohio (his home state) a night it wont forget when he hosts a huge bash this Saturday, the 24th.
But don’t check for flights just yet, this party is open to Dayton residents ONLY.
The party is scheduled to be held in the Oregon District, a popular nightlife area where the Aug. 4 mass shooting unfolded.
“This event will honor the lives lost and to reclaim the community’s favorite places to shop, dine and enjoy time with family and friends,” the Facebook event page said.
Titled the “Gem City Shine,” the event is strictly for Dayton residents, according to a registration page.
“You will not be able to redeem tickets, even if you receive a code, unless you are a legal resident of Dayton, OH area,” the page read.
Guests will receive a commemorative T-shirt in exchange for a $20 minimum donation that will go toward the tragedy fund at the Dayton Foundation, the page stated.
Dayton Mayor Nan Whaley tweeted about the party Wednesday, saying she was “so excited” to announce the event.
