Concert to benefit CASA
The Blue and Gray Barbershop Chorus and CASA of The Eastern Panhandle Inc., will co-sponsor this year’s spring concert on Saturday, April 18 in the Musselman Middle School auditorium.
“This is the first time in the history of the Blue & Gray Chorus that our group has joined with a local agency to raise funds to support abused and neglected children,” explained Ed Grove, Blue & Gray Chorus president.
The mission of CASA of the Eastern Panhandle, Inc. is to find a safe and permanent home for children in need in Berkeley, Jefferson and Morgan Counties.
CASA volunteers are appointed by court judges to watch over and advocate for abused and neglected children so they don’t get lost in the over-loaded legal and social service systems.
“Our CASA volunteers stay with each court case until it’s closed and the child is placed in a safe and permanent home,” said Ross Curtis, CASA board member. “We’re excited to be involved with a local organization like the Blue & Gray Chorus, which has done so much to raise and donate funds to support musical activities in Berkeley County middle and high schools.”
The Blue & Gray spring concert will include a spaghetti dinner, music program and post show “afterglow” get together for guests in the school’s auditorium, where soft drinks and desserts will be available.
The spaghetti dinner will be served from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. The concert will begin at 7 p.m.
Tickets for the dinner and concert are $15 and will be sold by Chorus members and on the CASA website at www.mycasaep.org. Additionally, tickets can be purchased through Frank Sherman at (681) 242-2395.
“The theme for this year’s program is “Music Across The Ages,”‘ Grove reported. “We’re looking forward to presenting an evening of food and outstanding family entertainment that will support children in need,” Grove said.
