"Guns and Hoses" Benefit Concert Coming Up Soon!

My pal Paul Neace sends along this information about a terrific show coming up soon - and best of all, the money raised will go to a very good cause.

It's the Guns and Hoses Benefit! Here's what it's all about:
All proceeds go to the Huntington Police Dept. (Guns), the Huntington Fire Dept. (Hoses) and the City of Huntington Foundation.

The show will take place Sept. 10, 2009, at the Huntington City Hall Auditorium.

$100 per person for dinner and the show, or $40 each to just see the performance.

Six front tables are available at $1,000 apiece

The evening includes: 6:00 p.m. - Dinner catered by Big Sandy Superstore Arena (steak or chicken) served inside City Hall on first floor and mezzanine - servers will be the fine men and women of the Huntington Police and Fire Departments as well as local celebrities - performance follows at 8:00 p.m. with the Fifth Avenue Theatre Company presenting a stage performance of Broadway tunes.

Performers include: Mary Olson, Linda Reynolds, Jennifer Scott, Marina Jurica, Ryan Hardiman, Danny Ray, Paul Neace, Ron Short, Nancy Jackson and Zach Davis.

Debbie Wolfe and Clint McElroy are serving as co-hosts.

Directed by: Eddie Harbert
Choreographed by: Coni Anthony

The event is being sponsored by Kindred Communications and the Herald-Dispatch.

Paul adds: "I know the price tag is a little steep for some but one must consider the cause and we promise to do our best to make it a $120 show."

Tickets are already on sale - call Maxine Loudermilk at City Hall at 304-696-5522
A great show for a great cause - what more could anyone ask? I advise reserving those tickets as soon as possible!
