Congratulations to Guy Caprioli, for developing the grassroots Music on the Porch community event 

Guy Caprioli was nominated by the community leaders of the Mordecai CAC for his development of a community event, Music on the Porch. Guy has worked tirelessly for the last two years to make this event a success, which in turn has improved and enhanced the
character of the many neighborhoods surrounding Seaboard Station. By partnering with local businesses to make this event possible, Guy has increased awareness and success for these establishments. Music on the Porch brought a safe and relaxing experience for local neighbors to hang out, build community, let their children play and most importantly enjoy different music each week. 

Music on the Porch is known around Raleigh as a fun Friday night event, but the local community is proud to have this event in their backyard. Thank you Guy! Thank you to Peace China for 100 percent support from the beginning. Thank you to Will Spence, a Raleigh resident, who is instrumental to the success of this event. Will has given up countless volunteer hours taking action on many behind the scene operational tasks. Lastly, thank you to all the Seaboard Station Shops for their support.
