SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (Dakota News Now) - On Saturday, the Headlights Theater and Let’s Skate came together to create a block party in Sioux Falls to collect socks to benefit the VA Hospital and veterans outreach.

“I’ve talked to Maddie over the years about wanting to put our music with her skills in dancing. And to see it this morning when they were going through it, I didn’t know what to expect and it’s cool to see it be communicated,” said Bryan Wehrkamp from The Band Companyon.

The free event and kicked off at 1:00 p.m. on the 300 block of East 12th Street and ran until 10:00 p.m.

“I love Sioux Falls, it’s where I am originally from, even though I don’t live here full time, I will forever and always be a Sioux Falls artist,” said Madison Elliot, executive and artistic director for the Headlights Theater. “That’s part of the reason why I constantly come back because I see how beautiful and incredible the individuals are here. It’s a community that has a lot of potential. It’s important that we help each other out in Sioux Falls and everything that we do. If we can make either a big impact or a small impact, regardless of the amount we’re making an impact.”

Saturday’s performance by Headlights Theater was their season 4 finale.
