Local talent to provide ‘An Evening of Entertainment’ in support of DAC’s scholarship fund

Past scholarship recipients of the Dufferin Arts Council (DAC) will perform at An Evening of Entertainment, to be held in the Grace Tipling Hall in Shelburne Ontario on Friday May 9th, from 7 – 10 p.m. (with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. – no reserved seats).

Visual artists will show and sell their art. Performers will volunteer their time to provide the audience with an evening to remember, with proceeds from the ticket sales, books, CD, and art, to be donated to the Scholarship Fund of the Dufferin Arts Council.

Since 1996, the DAC Endowment Fund has given out 102 cash awards totaling over $80,000. They continue to support students pursuing all of the arts disciplines, including visual arts, music, drama, theatrical design, dance, film, arts education and more.

Local Luthier and owner of Cithara Guitars, Daniel Clark of Mansfield Ontario is the sponsor for the event. Daniel stated that, “being a three time recipient of a scholarship from the Council, I sincerely appreciate the support that the Council has given me over the years and I am privileged and honoured to sponsor the event, to raise both awareness and funds for the Dufferin Arts Council Scholarship Fund.”

The evening is a true representation of the arts as there are many talented individuals who will perform and show their work, including singers, musicians, dancers, a theatrical performance, a literary reading, art work, theatrical costumes on display and more. Andrew Cleveland a graduate from York University, Bachelor of Fine Arts, Production and Design, will make a pair of Dorothy's ruby red slippers which will be for sale. Jessica Frey, a graduate from Theatre at Brock University, and author of five books, will be selling and signing her award winning novel. Patrick Clark, who recently completed his first album produced in Nashvillle, will also have it for sale.

Proceeds from these sales, the artwork, and tickets will be donated to the Scholarship Fund. Our confirmed lineup includes the following talented individuals: Coulter Baker, Aaron Bosnjak, Eden Cameron, Andrew Cleveland, Daniel Clark, Patrick Clark, Katie Dopp-Bryan, Ashley Duncan, Jessica Frey, Kaitlyn Gallant, Fabienne Good, Heather Halliday, Devon Jay, Kerri-Ann Paradis Hutton, and Rebecca Postma. This inaugural event will be an evening to remember for both those attending and those performing.

Tickets at $10 person are available at Shelburne Town Hall, BookLore, Scotia Bank (Riddell branch) and Cithara Guitars. Please support the event, the local artists, and the DAC Scholarship Fund.
