Christmas is a special time for many, and YANA is a local charity that provides support to families who need to travel for the medical care of a child, throughout the year.
Keeping this sentiment in mind, local musicians are teaming up with Games and Grounds Coffee House to put on a fundraiser on Christmas Eve day.
The Figments (Tom Walton, Blair Bentley) with guest Alan Jossul will be playing a mix of rock, country and Christmas carols from 2 – 4 p.m.
“I approached Alex a while ago about playing at their new location, and suggested that we do a fundraiser,” said Bentley. “As Christmas has a focus on families, we felt that YANA was a great choice.”
A number of other local musicians have also been invited to come down and sing a tune or two.
“People will be rushing around doing some last-minute shopping. We want to provide a little break for them… time to grab a warm drink, sit down, enjoy the music and have some fun,” said Alex Greenwood, co-owner of Games and Grounds Coffee House at 331 Fourth St.
