Boise's Interfaith Sanctuary no longer gets federal money, so the fundraisers become that much more important on the quest to take care of Boise's homeless population.

Several musicians are planning to come together for a benefit show, and this is how you can be part of it.

Outreach officer, April Neale, tells us that the benefit concert called Xtreme Xtravaganza is  in its 11th year, and it's happening in December.  She calls it a "wacky holiday variety show" hosted by Curtis Stigers and Interfaith's Jodi Peterson.  It features talented local Boise musicians, dancers, comedians and community leaders all donating their time and talents for the cause.

General admission and reserved seats went on sale last week, and the benefit show is coming up December 21st and 22nd, downtown at the Egyptian Theater. You can get tickets at Curtisstigers.com.

Curtis is a Boise native, and he's a classically trained musician, singer, saxophonist, and songwriter who crosses several genres.  When he's not in the studio or performing on tour internationally, he's also a big part of the McCall Jazz Festival charity fundraiser every year in August that also benefits Interfaith Sanctuary homeless shelter.

Sounds like a fun event for a good cause, and something to get on that December calendar before it fills up!
