Rock & Roll for Literacy

 

 

Blue Ridge Literacy Council is hosting “Rock & Roll for Literacy” on Saturday, November 8 from 7:30 – 9:30 p.m. at the Flat Rock Playhouse Downtown.  The concert and dance will also feature a silent auction. Music will be provided by The Vintage Vinyl Band and Mark Warwick, general manager of WTZQ – AM 1600, will serve as master of ceremonies.

“The concept is to offer a fun, affordable event around an informal gathering of friends, supporters and the general public at our intimate rock and roll house party with live music,” said Steve Kirkland, executive director of BRLC. “So, whether you want to dance or just mingle with friends, we’ve got you covered. Also, our silent auction items range from gift certificates at local eateries to vacation getaways and all things in between. In support of our mission of transforming lives through improved literacy and English communication skills for adult learners, we are also offering a special literacy related item.  Ann B. Ross, local author of the famed Ms. Julia series, has agreed to name a character in her next book after the highest bidder on this item. The book is in progress now, to be published in 2016. Not only is this a priceless opportunity to immortalize yourself or a loved one, but the winning bidder will also receive a signed copy of the book from Ms. Ross.”

“Lead sponsors for this event are Tom and Sue Fazio,” Kirkland continued. “Their wonderful support allows us to price tickets at $10 in advance and $15 at the door, so our students and all interested parties can have a reasonably priced night out. Tickets can be purchased by calling the Literacy Council at 828-696-3811 or online at www.litcouncil.org. We hope to attract a wide-range of folks who enjoy a well-planned ‘fun-raiser’ and care about the often ignored adult learners right here in our community.”  

BRLC is a United Way agency. For more information about this event or to become a volunteer tutor or student, or to donate call 828-696-3811; write BRLC at PO Box 1728, Hendersonville, NC 28793; or visit online at www.litcouncil.org.
