“All That Jazz” at Little Point Sable Association Church

<June 24, 2016> The Little Point Sable Association (LPSA) in Benona Township is again teaming up with the Community Foundation for Oceana County to host “All That Jazz” — an evening of fine entertainment that is also an investment in Oceana County arts.  The concert will be held beginning at 8 p.m. on Saturday, July 30, at the beautiful and acoustically fine LPSA “Stone” Church that’s located one mile west of Cherry Point Market near Silver Lake at Buchanan Road and Stone Church Road.

The concert performers, Edye Evan Hyde, Barry Ross, and Terry Lower will perform Ballads, Blues, and ‘all that Jazz’ in a new arrangement by the Trio of renowned artists who have impressive credentials.

This is the 13th annual benefit concert, and all proceeds will be added to the association’s “Arts for Oceana County Fund” under management of the Community Foundation for Oceana County.

“This growing endowment fund will help further the arts in Oceana for years to come,” said Foundation Executive Director Tammy Carey.  “It’s been such a pleasure working with our friends at Little Point Sable, most of them being second home residents here. They were looking for a way to make a positive impact in Oceana, a community they love and return to each summer.  It’s been a great partnership, with the LPSA’s arts fund contributing over $14,000 in grants to arts programs serving Oceana residents since 2006.”

Added Roy Wilson, concert chairperson, “We are so grateful for our generous donors and sponsors who have enabled this endowment fund to grow, which in turn allows us to increase grants.”

The Little Point Sable-Arts for Oceana County Fund continues to award grants that support its goal of enriching Oceana’s artistic culture.  The fund is making a major impact in 2016.  The largest 2016 grant was awarded to the Jr. Strings program, which includes needed scholarships for Oceana students studying violin and cello.   The Fund is also an early supporter of a new program – the Oceana Read Early, Read Often early literacy program – that will purchase and distribute (free) books for parents of babies and toddlers. The Sable Points Lighthouse Keepers Association also received a grant to help support the “Night at the Lights” music program – providing musical entertainment on Wednesday nights this summer at Little Sable Point Lighthouse.

The concert on, July 30th, is open to the public and tickets ($30 each) and sponsorships for the concert can be obtained by calling the Foundation office at 231-861-8335.
