GRAND BLANC — Happy Howlidays! Join Grand Blanc Music as they host a Christmas benefit concert to raise funds for the Friends of the Grand Blanc Dog Park. The talented teachers and students of Grand Blanc Music will perform favorite Christmas tunes on Dec. 16 from 6-8 p.m.
The golf course is located at 5270 Perry Rd., Grand Blanc, MI, 48439.
“This show is going to be a really good time with a lot of really talented musicians,” says Kyle Kanon, manager of Grand Blanc Music, “and the response from the community has been so positive, it’s cool to find out just how many people are looking forward to having a dog park in our town.”
The funds raised at the concert will go toward the landscaping of the Grand Blanc Dog Park in 2013. Construction began at the park site in October inside Creasey Bicentennial Park.
“We really love being able to put on shows in the community and are very thankful the Jewel has partnered with us to make that possible,” continued Kanon. “After meeting with The Friends of the Dog Park, I feel certain we have picked a great cause backed by great people to support.”
The event is free, however donations for the dog park will be accepted throughout the evening. All money for the park’s construction has been raised from private donors and no tax dollars have been used to build it.
In addition to enjoying the concert’s music, attendees will have the opportunity to bid on donated items in an auction.
“I don’t want to sound like Donald Trump, but there is some really classy stuff being donated here,” said Rik Kanon, owner of Grand Blanc Music.
