Strumming up a Conversation

April 6, 2018 | Rhythm City Casino Resort, Davenport IA

Intimate Conversations Series is an annual event presented by Genesis Cancer Care Institute that benefits Gilda’s Club Quad Cities.    We are pleased to bring to the stage Preacher Lawson and Mandy Harvey in 2018! Lawson, a comedian from Orlando, Florida, was a 2017 top 10 finalist on America’s Got Talent while Harvey took 4th place on the same stage as she used her ukulele to perform original songs during the competition.

There are 4 ticket options available this year:

The Meet and Greet VIP Dinner with Mandy Harvey includes a sit down meal and a special meet and greet and photo opportunity with Mandy. This will take place from 5-6pm. (Doors open at 4pm and, please note, this does not include a Main Event ticket.)

The main event will take place from 6-8pm and includes performances by both Preacher and Mandy. Please note that a main event ticket does not include a meal. (Doors open at 5pm)

Preacher’s VIP Meet and Greet Cocktail Hour will take place after the main event from 8-9pm and will include appetizers and a free drink ticket with each ticket purchased. (Please note, this does not include a Main Event ticket.)

All at no cost to them.
