GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Six members from the Gate City Youth Slam Team will be heading to Philadelphia next month to compete in a poetry competition.

They are using their words to battle it out at the Braves New Voices International Youth Poetry Slam Festival. It's a wonderful opportunity to perform and visit a new place, but they need your help getting there.

They're having a "send off" event and fundraiser on Wednesday, July 9th, at the Greensboro Cultural Arts Center at 8 p.m.
