How would you like to help some less fortunate children in our community, while enjoying a night of great entertainment in the process? On Thursday night, December 12th, you will have that opportunity.
A musical concert titled “Rockin’ Around the Angel Tree” will be presented on that night, beginning at 7:00 p.m., with all proceeds raised from the event going to benefit the DeKalb County Angel Tree project. Several performers from the local area – and potentially some other special guests – will take the stage at the DeKalb County Community Center on South Congress Boulevard for a night of rockin’ fun, all to benefit a good cause.
Tom Duggin and Tim Colwell featured in video below were guests on WJLE's Chamber Chat Program Wednesday morning with Suzanne Williams and Jen Sherwood.
No tickets will be sold to the event, but donations will be asked for at the door. Attendees are asked to give what they are able to, with no minimum donation required. Seating for the show will be limited, and attendees will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis. The Community Center auditorium will hold roughly 400 people for a performance.
Many of the gifts for this year’s Angel Tree will be purchased by the time of the concert, but remaining gifts will be purchased with the money raised, and the remainder of the proceeds will go into an account to give Angel Tree organizers a head start on the 2014 holiday season.
The night of entertainment will begin promptly at 7:00 p.m., featuring local performers Brad Hennessee, Jamie Nokes, Sabrina Kirksey and Demytris Savage among others, with other special guests potentially performing. The night of entertainment will conclude with a rockabilly-style Christmas performance featuring Tom Duggin and TCB (the Tim Colwell Band ). The band consists of lead guitarist Tim Colwell, keyboardist Steve “Kujo” Kujowski, bassist Brian Benedict, drummer Michael Young and rhythm guitarists Nick Nokes and Brad Hennessee.
So, put on your Santa hats and your dancin’ shoes, and come out for a rockin’ good time, again with all proceeds to benefit the DeKalb County Angel Tree Project. Remember the date, Thursday night, December 12th, at 7:00 p.m., at the DeKalb County Community Center auditorium for the first-ever Rockin’ Around The Angel Tree.
