The theme of the event is “BELIEVE,” with the goal of inspiring listeners to realize that believing is not as simple as black and white.

All proceeds support the work of the Children’s Advocacy Center, which serves as a safe haven for children and families suffering from the trauma of sexual abuse, physical abuse, and witness to violence. Learn more about the Children’s Advocacy Center here.
Here:Say, which Murphy notes is similar to “The Moth” program on National Public Radio, is a live storytelling show staged monthly from October through May at The Workshop Brewing Company in Traverse City’s Warehouse District.
The shows take place on the first Monday of each month for open mic storytelling, and on the third Monday of each month for mainstage shows.
