Many places in the Quad Cities rang in the new year this weekend with big celebrations.

The Village Theatre celebrated the arrival of 2022 for a good cause.

Located in the Village of East Davenport, the theatre hosted a New Year’s Eve party Friday evening with a show performed by Taboo Burlesque.

People also enjoyed music, comedians and a champagne toast at midnight.

The event was held to support the nonprofit organization QC Harm Reduction, as well as New Ground Theatre.

General manager Matt Moody says the celebration was a way to give back to people struggling with substance abuse.

“They give people who are really having a hard time an opportunity,” said Moody. “We think they have a great mission and want to do everything we can to support it.”
