VOSCA Benefit

Friday, MARCH 26th, 2010
7-10 PM
Tickets: $10 adults, $5 students

Pompanuck Farm will host a dance benefit for VOSCA. Music and dancing will begin at 7pm, and a short intermission when VOSCA members will talk a bit about their efforts.

Dirty Ol' Strings is an acoustic trio from Cambridge, including Deena Chappell (mandolin, vocals) Dave Cuite (stand-up bass, vocals) and David Lawlor (guitar, vocals). The group formed in the late fll of '08 and has been steadily gaining recognition in the area for their strong vocals and instrumental prowess. They perform an energetic mix of contemporary and traditional bluegrass, swing, and folk with a playful air and occassional sardonic humor: a fun band to experience live.

This year, VOSCA with 20 CCS students (mostly seniors) and six chaperones will be headed back to an area near Loris, SC where they will again be rebuilding homes of the very impoverished, and hopefully have some quality time with children.

VOSCA has three other fundraisers underway: a "Many Prizes" Raffle, a car wash at Stewart's on March 27th, and a Chicken BBQ on March 28th at the Legion (4-6pm). All funds raised will help pay for travel, room, and board, and building materials. For more information, call Bob Cheney at 518-677-2766.
