DARKE COUNTY – Darke County Center for the Arts recognized Edward Jones Investment representatives Zachary Bruening, Dave Connelly, Ryan Carpe and Todd Subler for their support.
The Edward Jones Investment representatives are sponsoring of the Irish Wave fundraiser set for 6:30 p.m. March 15 at Montage Cafe as well as the recent sold out A Taste of Wine & Jazz held in January.
“DCCA thanks Edward Jones Investment Representatives for their continued support of the arts in Darke County,” DCCA Executive Director Andrea Jordan said. “We are looking forward to the seventh annual Irish Wave to be an opportunity to celebrate all things Irish. The monies generated will help enable our organization to bring high quality performing artists to our community.”
Music will be performed by Lone Raven, a group that DCCA Artistic Director Keith Rawlins described as one of the top bands in the Midwest.
“Lone Raven performs an eclectic blend of traditional music as well as their own originals,” Rawlins said. “They’ll tear through peppy Irish reels, play haunting Gypsy fiddle tunes and render soulful airs, leaving the audience breathless and begging for more.”
Attendees can count on a diverse choice of beers; four tastes and a commemorative beer glass are included in the price of admission. For non-beer drinkers, other beverages including wine will be available. Irish-themed food prepared by Montage proprietors Aaron and Michele Cox also will be provided.
