Hello, everyone. If you're looking for something fun to experience while helping a good cause at the same time, why not head over to the Oak Harbor Club House where the Salvation Army is having its annual benefit dinner.
Their goal is $60,000, and the keynote speaker is Ted Williams, who has morphed from being a panhandler to a voice over star. No tickets are being sold, as the organization is relying on donations after the dinner. And if I know this community, I know there are lots of people who would love to help out this cause.
For more information, just give them a call at (772) 978-0265.
If you have kids like I do, spring break wasn't long enough and I am now looking for ways to keep the kids busy this summer.
The Indian River Mall is ready to help you out, because this weekend it's having a summer camps and attractions expo from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be tables featuring all the different summer camps, and the expo will also have food sampling and lots of kid's games. There will even be a petting zoo!
If you want to continue to support the kids in the community, head out to Vero Beach High School, where the high school concert, symphonic and Jazz bands will be performing the concert "Made in America." This is the 20th annual concert Red, White and Blue musical performance the school has put on, and it's been billed as THE patriotic event of the year. You can't help but support something that celebrates our local veterans.
The concert will take place at 2 p.m. on April 7 at the school's performing arts center, and the tickets are just $12 per person.
No matter what you decide to do this week, be sure to drive safe and I'll see you out and about.
