Project One Step Concert to Benefit Pocono Alliance & Local Pantries
Project One Step is preparing for their sixth annual benefit choral concert in Stroudsburg. On November 18, 2018, Patti Drennan will bring her beautiful voice and composer’s originality to the stage in the Stroudsburg High School auditorium. She will perform solo from the piano and also direct the Project One Step Community Choir and the Pocono Community Orchestra for their segments of the program. An additional feature of this year’s event will be the debut appearance of the Major Minors, a community youth choir under the direction of Nicole Rideout. Following intermission, the winning ticket will be drawn for a new C. F. Martin guitar.
This concert is a benefit event, raising money, in partnership with Pocono Alliance, to meet basic needs among our neighbors. It will support Bridges out of Poverty, a program that educates and motivates families to become self-sufficient, and FILL a GLASS with HOPE, a project created by the Pennsylvania Dairymen’s Association and Feeding Pennsylvania to provide low-cost fresh milk for food pantries throughout Monroe County to distribute to their clients. Last year, Project One Step distributed more than $12,000 to these beneficiaries.
The concert begins at 2:30 pm. Tickets cost $15 each. Each concert ticket ordered in advance will come with a free raffle entry. See www.projectonestep.org for purchasing instructions and information about Patti Drennan, choir participation, and more.
