Up with People Live Tour comes to Brevard County



Monica Shah, director of community relations at Southeast Petro Distributors Inc. and an Up with People alumna, have helped to raise more than $45,000 in sponsorships for the Up with People Live World Tour.

The Up with People Live World Tour presentation is an energetic and magical musical routine used as a medium to communicate a message of hope and goodwill across nations.

Two evening performance shows will be held — at 8 p.m. Friday, March 16 at Eau Gallie High School and at 7 p.m. Saturday, March 17 at Eau Gallie High.

All proceeds will benefit the Children’s Hunger Project.

Tickets for the event start at $15 per person and can be purchased at upwithpeople.org/brevardcounty.

It is a global organization that brings change to local communities internationally. Up with People is a service leadership and performing arts program that takes young adults on a semester-long, multi-continent tour to promote change and inspire the communities they visit. Participants from 20 countries travel to a new destination each week.

Throughout this journey, they impact the communities they visit through host family stays, cultural exchange, 1,000-plus hours of community service, leadership and diversity curricula for more than 2,500 children and putting on a captivating performance for the public using the international language of music.

This tour will mark the second time this group has come to Brevard County and has had an impact to the local community with their services. VV
