BENONA TOWNSHIP — The Little Point Sable Association (LPSA) is again teaming up with the Community Foundation for Oceana County to host “The Fabulous Fifties” — an evening of entertainment that is also an investment in Oceana County arts.

The concert is set for 8 p.m. Saturday, July 29, at the beautiful and acoustically-fine LPSA “Stone” Church located one mile west of Cherry Point Market near Silver Lake, at Buchanan Road and Stone Church Road.

This year’s concert brings a beloved trio back again: Barry Ross on violin, singer Lana Hoffman and Steve Kamerling on guitar, performing an evening of Broadway, rock and country. This is the 14th annual benefit concert, and all proceeds will be added to the association’s “Arts for Oceana County Fund” under management of the Community Foundation for Oceana County.

“It’s been such a pleasure working with our friends at LPSA, most of them being second home residents. They were looking for a way to make a positive impact in Oceana, a community they love and return to each summer,” said Foundation Executive Director Tammy Carey.

“We had a very active year of granting to worthy projects, totaling just over $9,000. Indeed, LPSA is having an impact through charitable giving through the arts fund, fulfilling our original mission with the concerts. Many thanks to everyone that contributes to the fund through your attendance and various levels of sponsorship at our annual concerts. A great investment year with the foundation also helped us to benefit more programs,” said Roy Wilson, concert chairperson and LPS resident.

Grants awarded over the last year include:
• $500 – Pentwater Arts Council, Movies on the Green equipment;
• $1,000 – New Era Christian Reformed Church, farmer’s market music program;
• $500 – Read Early, Read Often, Oceana early literacy initiative (books for babies and toddlers);
• $3,000 – Arts Council of White Lake, Oceana Junior Strings program, scholarships;
• $1,000 – Hart Area Public Library, Lego Literacy Club;
• $499 – Big Brothers, Big Sisters, books for Lunch Buddies program at Shelby Elementary;
• $150 – Oceana Conservation District, White Pine seedlings for all Oceana third graders;
• $1,200 – Sable Points Lighthouse Keepers, Children’s Activity Book sponsor;
• $1,041 – The Ladder Community Center, music equipment;
• $250 – Sable Points Lighthouse Keepers, Music at the Lights program (Wednesday Nights).

The concert July 29 is open to the public, but sells out every year. So, patrons are encouraged to act quickly. Tickets ($30 each) and sponsorships (silver, gold, platinum or diamond) for the concert can be obtained by calling the foundation office at 231-861-8335.
