If there’s one thing we can all agree on during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s that you can never have enough entertainment. From virtual vacations to cooking classes to dance lessons, people all across the world are getting creative. If you’re looking for some Friday evening plans this week, we suggest you grab yourself a beverage and tune in to the Virtual Apres Music Series featuring Scottish singer/songwriter KT Tunstall and two-time Olympic gold medal U.S. skier Mikaela Shiffrin, who will both perform live via Facebook. And the best part? The whole Virtual Apres Music Series benefits Goggles for Docs.
