An Outdoor Lakeside Benefit for Project Bauhow
NCModernist's Rural High School Educational Initiative

Imagine a lakeside summer concert on the grass, your picnic basket and plastic cup (sorry no glass) of wine in hand, as you listen to the music of singer, actor, host, and all-around great guy John Davidson.  You've seen him on TV all your life as host of the Tonight Show, $10,000 Pyramid, Hollywood Squares, and the John Davidson Show.  Over a 50-year career he's worked with everyone in Hollywood, including Carol Burnett, Johnny Carson, Gavin McLeod, Karl Malden, Sally Field, and Lucille Ball. He's cut 13 albums and tonight he sings and talks about his past - and his future.

What is Project Bauhow? High school drafting students are the future of architecture; yet in many rural North Carolina counties, there are few resources for drafting students or their teachers. There is a marked disparity between the eight wealthiest counties in North Carolina (Wake, Durham, Orange, Forsyth, Buncombe, Guilford, Mecklenburg, and New Hanover) and the remaining 92. Since 2013, Project BauHow has provided site visits by architects, field trips to NC State's College of Design, summer program scholarships in design to NC State and UNC Charlotte, and hundreds of free computers to increase student access and opportunities.  To learn more about supporting Project Bauhow, contact Rebekah Laney, rebekah@ncmodernist.org.
