North Creek A romantic musical concert, “Valentine Hit Parade,” and a champagne reception to benefit the Adirondack Community Outreach Center will be held 8 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 4 at the Tannery Pond Community Center.
Carolyn Bischoff, Denise Conti, Laura Lee Conti, Beatriz de Mello, Dan Studnicky and Garrett Rubin will perform a potpourri of romantic tunes, such as Cole Porter’s “Night and Day,” “My Funny Valentine” by Hart/Rogers, and Gershwin’s “I Got Rhythm,” followed by a reception.
The Pearsall Financial Group at UBS has generously awarded the ACOC a charity grant matching net profits up to $2,000, and the town of Johnsburg has donated the use of Tannery Pond Community Center for this event.
All money raised from the benefit will be used by the Adirondack Community Center to support such programs and services as school supplies to children in the fall and Christmas toys for children using the food pantry. The food pantry supplements food for about 20 percent of people in Johnsburg. The clothing center supplies clients from 20 different zip codes.
“Our post-concert reception can be described as the ‘dessert’ to Restaurant Week with donations, sweet and savory, from various local businesses and individuals,” said Samantha Kimbrell of the ACOC and the Gore Mountain Region Chamber of Commerce.
The post-concert reception will include treats donated by barVino, Barkeater Chocolates, Black Mountain Restaurant, Copperfield Inn, Cafe Sarah, Garnet Hill Lodge, Inn on Gore, Marsha's Restaurant, Saratoga North Creek Railroad, St. James Catholic Church, Pat Carr, Nancy Beaudin, and Judy Gordon.
Tickets are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. Checks should be made out to the ACOC and can be sent to ACOC, P.O. Box 201, North Creek, NY 12853.
