Kevin Deetz – Emcee

I grew up in a small town just down the road from Eau Claire, and I have always appreciated how people in this community are always coming together to give back to those in need. My wife and I have attended a number of fundraisers and events throughout the years, so I was honored to be asked to help make Voice of the Future a success! The work that they do at the Boys and Girls Club is pretty incredible, so I’m just excited to be able to help in any small part. I might not be able to sing, but anyone who knows me would agree that I sure do love to talk!
