Gospel & Broadway fundraiser

Take in some Broadway and gospel music Sept. 21 and help provide permanent housing for the homeless mentally ill.

Tickets are now available for “Southern Nights and Broadway Lights,” a fundraiser sponsored by the Mental Health Center of North Central Alabama, based in Decatur.

The evening will include Broadway show tunes and gospel music numbers by well-known area vocalists such as Laura Burdeshaw, Lance Pate, Beth Swann and Mary Catherine McAnnally. Dave Briley will direct the music for the evening. Violinist Vilhar Weimann also will take part.

Randy Cross, a storyteller and instructor at Calhoun Community College, will add humor to the program, said Mental Health Center board chairman Jim Denton.

The fundraiser will begin at 6 p.m. with a silent auction hour and jazz band music in the lobby of the Princess Theatre Center for the Performing Arts. Gourmet desserts and coffees will be served, along with wine. Tickets are $75 each or $125 for a couple. Funds raised will help the Mental Health Center match a grant so housing can be built for the mentally ill. For tickets, call 260-7324, 260-7351.
