‘Hug Your Farmer: Hard Rain’ is 7:30 p.m. is Thursday at the Flynn Center for Performing Arts. Tickets are on sale at The Flynn’s website and you’ll want to buy them quickly.

The best part about this fundraising event? 100% of the proceeds will directly go to the Vermont Community Foundation’s flood relief fund.
