Bluegrass Benefit this Saturday in Liberty

The Chambers family of Our Lady of Good Counsel Parish in Kansas City has been performing Bluegrass and Classical music throughout the metro area for eight years. This year they won top honors at the New Musician Showcase Competition. The prize for that competition was use of the Liberty Performing Arts Theatre.

The Chambers are turning that opportunity into a charity benefit for Alexandra's House, Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics and Marian Hope Center for Children's Therapy.
And they’re counting on area families to join in on the fun Saturday, July 26, beginning at 6 p.m. at the Liberty Theatre, 1600 S. Withers Rd. in Liberty.

Alexandra's House is a remarkable perinatal hospice in Kansas City which Lori Wood Habiger featured in The Catholic Key a few years back.

Fox 4 anchor Phil Witt will emcee the event featuring the Chambers family along with other area groups.

Tickets are $10 for adults, $5 for kids (under 12), or $35 for a family. Prices are higher at the door. All proceeds benefit the three charities.

For more information, contact Maribeth Chambers, 816-454-3729 or the Liberty Performing Arts Theatre. For reserved seating, contact 816-439-4362.
