Some of East Tennessee’s most exciting performing artists will share one stage in Oak Ridge in a concert to raise funds for the Child Advocacy Center of Anderson County, or CACAC, a press release said.
The event attracts a cadre of talented singers, songwriters, dancers, and performers from the area, the press release said. This year, it’s scheduled to start at 6 p.m. Friday, April 28, at the Grove Theater at 123 Randolph Road in Grove Center.
Two of the area’s most talented performers will be highlighting the evening, the press release said. Kelle Jolly, “The Tennessee Ukulele Lady,” is one of East Tennessee’s most celebrated jazz musicians and a WUOT personality, the release said. Dominick White, a baritone with the Marble City Opera Company, will share his talent in the evening of fun.
Other singers, plus dance ensembles, will be performing including tango, lindy hop, and Greg Carney’s hip-hop. The emcee of the evening will be Zach Farrar who will also be handling the live auction.
“This event makes a difference in the lives of children,” said Sally Avery, president of the CACAC Board of Directors. “An evening of entertainment while supporting the kids, it is the event to be at this year!”
Arrive at 6 p.m. to enjoy delicious treats, socialize, and browse the silent auction items, the press release said. Craft beer will also be available for purchase.
Performances and the live auction will begin at 7 p.m. Zach Farrar will get the audience bidding on items such as Disney Park Hopper tickets, a Chattanooga Get-Away with stay at the Chattanoogan Hotel, a beautiful quilt, and much more, the press release said. There will also be a raffle.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $5 for children/youth, and they will also be available at the door. Check out the website for a complete list of auction items, which is updated regularly. The website will provide more information about other performers.
