Darke County Center for the Arts “Barbecue and Blues” fundraising event at Greenville Golf Course on Friday, July 22 will not only feature music and ribs, but will also offer desserts from Ghyslain. “We are excited about snagging bluesmaster Michael Locke to provide the music, happy that Hog Wild Bar-B-Que agreed to be our food vendor, and now I am absolutely thrilled to say that Ghyslain will offer desserts for sale to our patrons,” said Julie Strait, Executive Director of DCCA. Ghyslain, an internationally known chocolatier, has operated a shop in Union City since 1998, where his products include French pastries, gelato, and other delicacies, and also operates restaurants in Richmond and Indianapolis, IN and Louisville, KY .

According to Mrs. Strait, DCCA's “Barbecue and Blues” has been planned as a fun-filled outdoor summertime event for the entire family. “We invite the community to bring their lawn chairs and blankets and head on out to the Golf Course for delicious food, great music, and a good time,” she said. Food items offered for sale by Hog Wild Bar-B-Que in addition to ribs include pulled pork, brisket, and home-made sides, as well as loaded nachos, walking tacos, and iced tea and lemonade. Soft drinks and alcoholic beverages can be purchased from Greenville Golf Course.

Bluesman Michael Locke and his band will perform; a Florida native who now calls Southwest Ohio his home, Locke is known for his lightening fast guitar riffs and rock-solid rhythms. The appearance by Michael Locke and the Repeat Offenders is sponsored by Matt and Angie Arnold, George and Becky Luce, and Robert and Jean McLear.

Admission to the event costs $10; “Barbecue and Blues” opens at 6:30 p.m. Although tickets will be available at the gate, DCCA strongly recommends purchasing tickets in advance in order to assist the food vendor in planning for adequate supplies. Tickets may be purchased at Greenville Golf Course, Readmore's Hallmark, or by contacting DCCA at 937-547-0908 or Proceeds will benefit DCCA's programs in the community, including Arts In Education and the Family Theatre Series.
