GLADE SPRING, Va. — Proceeds from an annual fundraiser in Glade Spring will ensure the town’s art center continues to serve the community.
The fourth annual Jazz for the Arts, scheduled for 6 to 9 p.m. on April 12, will benefit the operations and programming of the Town Square Center for the Arts. The music event will be held at The Point (the Farmers Market Pavilion) in downtown.
“The money we raise will help us purchase supplies for our adult and children classes. We offer a multitude of classes from quilting to painting,” said Susan Powers, an organizer of the event.
According to Powers, the fundraiser is expected to raise more than $3,000, all of which will support programs and events.
“The money will help us promote better services for our community,” said Powers.
Music will be provided by Wolf Hills Jazz Quartet, featuring Tom Peterson on tenor sax, Ernie Braganza on electric guitar, Ed Davis on acoustic bass and Joe Pendergast on drums.
Clean Eats in the town square will furnish barbecue with the fixings. Wine and beer will be available, along with soda drinks.
The event includes a silent auction with items donated from local businesses.
Dress is casual.
Tickets are $30 and can be purchased at Town Square Center for the Arts or online at www.tscaart.com.
The Town Square Center for the Arts is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. Contact the center at 276-429-1276.
