Bring a loved one out for a night of romance, roses, and sweetness, celebrating that most complicated and powerful emotion called love. St. Mary’s continues its Red Door series with a casual concert of standards, favorites, and some fun surprises with a jazz flavor.
Once again, Wilmington area musicians will offer their talents led by Blind Date, the guitar-vocal duo of Joe and Holly Fortner, who have appeared in the Jazz in the Mountains series at Memorial Hall, as well as the September 2016 Red Door Concert and the Community Carol Sing held last December. They also serenaded Lake Raponda on Labor Day weekend. They are joined by Eithne Eldred, another veteran of the Jazz in the Mountains series, as well as Deerfield Valley Food Pantry president Evon Mack, who has performed at West Dover Congregational Church and the Red Door Community Carol Sing.
The concert will benefit the Deerfield Valley Food Pantry, an all volunteer, 501(c)(3) organization, which for almost 20 years has supplied nourishment and essentials to families in the Deerfield Valley. Its mission is to see that no one in the area goes needlessly hungry or lacks the basics for personal care. Each month the food pantry supplies nourishment to just under 100 families and 250 individuals.
Come share the love with a favorite one, and with Deerfield Valley residents who could use a hand filling their grocery bags.
