KUAF Hosts Christmas Show at Fayetteville Public Library


FAYETTEVILLE — The holiday season is right around the corner, and to help local residents get into the holiday spirit, KUAF is hosting a Christmas-themed show at 6:30 p.m. Dec. 4 at the Fayetteville Public Library, which is located at 401 W. Mountain St. The public is invited to be part of the audience as hosts of KUAF's local news program, Ozarks at Large, interview representatives from Cooperative Emergency Outreach and the United Way of Northwest Arkansas about the importance of giving year-round and not just during the holiday giving season. Other guests include Becca Martin Brown from Northwest Arkansas Newspapers who will help you get a head start on planning your entertainment in 2014, and musical performances by the Adams Collins Trio, Jones'n' Leah, and Farmer and the Markets.

The event will be recorded and portions of it will be broadcast by KUAF during the Dec. 24th editions of Ozarks at Large. The event is free and open to the public. Guests are invited to bring nonperishable food items, which will be donated to the Fayetteville Public Schools Outback program. The food pantry and clothing closet helps families in need in the Fayetteville School District and is KUAF's Giving Tree charity of choice this year.
