After a significant slowing of financial support, Flourish Bakery needs your help. To find out why, RadioACTive spoke with Executive Director Rev. Aimee Altizer, board member Ed Turner and Flourish intern Rachel Alvalle. The nonprofit employs individuals in recovery from substance use disorders, often reintegrating their lives after a period of incarceration. Without significant support from the community, Flourish's very existence, Altizer said, is at stake. 

  • May 13: The Kinsey Sicks Benefit Concert for Flourish Bakery, 7:00 p.m. at Salt Lake Masonic Temple, 650 E. South Temple, SLC. "Join Flourish at the Salt Lake Masonic Temple for an event you will not likely forget: a performance by The Kinsey Sicks - America's Favorite Dragapella® Beautyshop Quartet. It's the hottest ticket in town in a theatre few get to see. Be warned though, the show will be performed with a handbag full of fun with a touch of bawdy humor. The Kinsey Sicks shows are for mature audiences. The Kinsey Sicks are so much more than a cabaret act, the Masonic Temple is more than a theatre, and Flourish is more than a bakery. Tickets will be sold for $50 at the door."
