Fridays in the Valley Founders
(Vicki and Sue)

“Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.”  Victor Hugo

Valley Community Presbyterian Church has long enjoyed a rich musical heritage. Building on this tradition, Fridays in the Valley was created for local musicians to showcase their talents while providing a benefit for local charities.

Fridays in the Valley is an eclectic mix of quality musicians performing in an intimate setting, making fine music accessible to our community.

Funding for the Fridays in the Valley concert series is made possible by a gift from Greg and Mary Rom.

The 30-Days Foundation Many of you may be unfamiliar with The 30-Days Foundation. Some of you may be quite familiar with its founder, Mick Stirling, a local artist/composer/musician. Mick sings in many venues around the Twin Cities and is a vital part of the Bayfront Festival in Duluth (you my be one of the 20,000 annually that have been in that audience) Mick Stirling remembers when life was not easy, and as a result of that memory and his growing financial security, he believed he should give back, or pay it forward. Since 2011, The 30-Days Foundation has assisted over 80,000 families with one-time financial grants payable only to the service provider that needs payment. "If you ask us for help," Mick says, "you will have our answer within 30 days." (maximum one-time grants are $1,500). Among the foundation's nearly 40 partners are Mary's Place, People Incorporated and PRISM. Michelle Ness, CEO of PRISM, says, Mick and The 30-Days Foundation are great. Your support for him also impacts PRISM.
