Western New York's renowned Summer of '69 All-Star Band will take the Lewiston Event Center stage on Saturday, April 8. From 6-10 p.m., these musicians will be joined by Lewiston Music School students and local celebrities in a fundraiser for the interfaith Home Assistance Referral Team.
Participants can bowl, play virtual golf and mingle with local television, political and business leaders. Those of age can be served a drink from an A-list roster of bartenders, including Keith Radford, Maryalice Demler, Barry Lillis, Richard Soluri, Village of Lewiston Mayor Terry Collesano, Town of Lewiston Supervisor Steve Broderick and Lori Caso.
Legitimate bartenders pitching in to help include Art Ponzi of Macri's, Justin Balcom of Center Cut: The Village Steakhouse, Eddie Wojcik representing The Stone Jug, Pat Stack of Somewhere and Tracy Gillick of Hill-Vue Café.
Lewiston Music School students will perform at 6 p.m. The Summer of '69 All-Star Band will follow, and perform the biggest musical hits of all time.
Last year's inaugural event raised a significant amount of funding for programs associated with HART outreach efforts. This year, voluntary donations and tips will again benefit the organization, which has been located at the First Presbyterian Church of Lewiston for more than 30 years.
HART is a not-for-profit organization that helps provide the elderly and infirm with assistance, allowing them to remain independent in their homes. For information about HART services, or the April 8 event, call 754-8313.
