The Information Center will host its annual gala fundraiser Thursday evening, Oct. 12, at Crystal Gardens Banquet Center, 16703 Fort St., Southgate. This year, the nonprofit organization will celebrate “Country Style.” Dr. Noel Jackson will emcee the evening.
Jackson has been a cosmetic, implant and family dentist since 1980. He is the founder and president of DYPAC, Downriver Youth Performing Arts Center, a member and past president of the Rotary Club of Trenton and an avid community volunteer. Entertainment for the country-themed fundraiser will be provided by popular, local band, Annabelle Road.
Made up of four dynamic and gifted young musicians — with vocalist Amanda beguiling the crowds, and guitarist Jeremy Temple, bassist Donovan Tarjeft and drummer Phillip Marteney rocking hard as nails – Annabelle Road’s infectious enthusiasm and tight sound come from an “all in, all or nothing” passion for entertaining.
“Even if it means no sleep, playing five nights in a row,” said Jeremy, “it’s what we do.”
Amanda takes that commitment up one notch even higher: “If my hair hasn’t gone flat by the end of the set we haven’t tried hard enough.”
The Gala evening starts with a 6:15 p.m. reception followed by a dinner, silent auction, music and dancing. All funds raised allow The Information Center to continue free community programs and services throughout 2018. Sponsorships and individual tickets are available by calling (734) 282-7171 or may be purchased online at www.theinfocenter.org.
