VOTE WITH YOUR WALLET is a 3-stage concert event within the walls of The Crofoot complex in Pontiac, featuring a collection of Detroit musical acts, with a focus on giving back to the community. Upon entry, all patrons attending the event will be given a token with which they can vote for one of four Detroit-area charities (listed below), and for each token collected, $2.00 will be donated to that organization! All artists on the bill will also be donating a portion of their payment for the night to the charity of their choice! At the end of the night, the organizations receiving the highest AND lowest total will each receive an additional $250 donation from Fusion Shows. The event will also feature a silent auction including concert tickets, festival passes, signed swag, and more, 100% of the proceeds from which will be split equally among the four charities!

Six Feet Over / Suck It Suicide! (Detroit): A non-profit organization servicing the great state of Michigan. We work to strengthen our community by spreading awareness and educating others about mental illness and suicide prevention, supporting and advocating on behalf of those in need, and connecting them with resources.
Hope, Inc (Pontiac): Founded in 1998 as a community response to a homeless person freezing to death in downtown Pontiac, Michigan, the center has provided emergency shelter for individuals struggling with homelessness in northern Oakland County, turning no person away. HOPE is committed to serving Pontiac’s homeless population through two distinct yet complementary programs, Adult Shelter Program and our newest venture, Recuperative Care Center. In both of these programs our mission is the same – to help those in need of safe shelter and support services without judgment.
