George Winston encourages food drive for Green Lake County Food Pantry.
George Winston, world-renowned melodic folk pianist, will be making a return visit to Green Lake on Friday, April 29, at 7:30 p.m. for another sold-out performance in the intimacy of the historic Thrasher Opera House. Thrasher Opera House, along with Winston, would like to remind concertgoers that the Green Lake County Food Pantry, once again, accepted our invitation to participate in a food drive on the evening of the concert. Representatives will be available to accept donations of non-perishable foods to help fill their pantry, and in addition, 100% of the merchandising proceeds from the items sold at Winston’s concert will be donated to the organization. In 2003, the Green Lake County Food Pantry received over 257 pounds of food and $634 in donations as a result of the concert/food drive at Thrasher.
Generous sponsorship from the Green Lake State Bank and Heidel House helped to make this unique concert/food drive possible and we applaud their efforts for collaborating with us on such a worthy cause.
Although the Winston concert is sold-out, please keep in mind we have many other wonderful performances ahead. For instance, legendary folk artist, Al Stewart, best known for his hit songs “Year of the Cat” and “Time Passages” will be performing on May 14 at 7:30 p.m. “Tickets are going fast for this concert, with Stewart fans coming from as far away as South Dakota and Canada, says Program Director, Roby Irvin. So don’t be disappointed; better get your tickets soon.”
Thrasher Opera House, a non-profit organization, is located at 506 Mill Street, Green Lake. The ticket and business office is next door at 510 Mill Street. Ticket sales, program schedules and artist information are available online at www.thrasheroperahouse.com.
