MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- It was a Motown Christmas at the Riverside Theater Friday, Dec. 17, a celebration of Milwaukee's youth.
"A Motown Christmas" is a family-oriented show combining Motown's greatest hits with everyone's favorite holiday classics.
It was hosted by STRYV365, a Milwaukee-based nonprofit dedicated to helping community youth overcome trauma through education, sports and other fun activities.
The performance was a holiday gift to Milwaukee's youth to celebrate their resilience in the face of significant trauma they have faced over the past two years.
"The past two years have shown us there are a ton of challenges, it's tough to prepare for everything," said Dr. Brandon Currie of STRYV365. "With the pandemic hitting, it shined a light on the importance of mental health. But we need to create solution-based approaches to actually help deal with those issues."
Prior to the event, community, civic, education and business leaders were invited to learn more about STRYV365 and its unique curriculum and how they could help out.
