This Saturday, we’ve got the WB Garden Guild Tour of Gardens from 9:00am-1:00pm, the WB Disc Golf Tournament with tee-offs from 9:00am-12:30pm and we can finish up the day with a wonderful Open Ears Concert and fundraiser at St. Andrews beginning at 6:00pm!

On Saturday, May 18, 2013, at 6 PM, St. Andrews at 14311 Wells Port Drive, will hold a fundraising event to help continue the Open Ears Concerts series, support other arts events, and supplement the audio/visual systems at the church. Music will be provided by The Studebakers and other special guests. The Studebakers – Jill Montgomery, Becky Cavanaugh, Sharon Maner, Randy Seybold, and Marilyn Rucker – bring back the marvelous melodies and lyrics of the songs of the 20s, 30s and 40s and deliver them with the clarity and close harmony that made them such big favorites in those years. Fun and frolicking is guaranteed for all!
Soup Nuts! – Some of the best amateur chefs around will astound you with their creations. Sample all for free, and then vote with your dollars.
Baker Street – After the soup, wind your way toward the music, and purchase desserts to go with our delicious fair trade coffee.
Admission – $5 suggested donation in advance, $10 at the door. Simply go to our website (below) and click on the Donate link. When you confirm your order, type “Open Ears Concerts Fundraiser” in the Special Instructions window, and bring your receipt with you to the show.
