Matt & Angie Arnold, George & Becky Luce, and Tom & Jennifer Bish with Dr. Robert and Jean McLear
Darke County Center for the Arts is proud to announce its third annual Barbecue and Blues fundraiser to take place at Turtle Creek Golf Course, 6545 St. Rt. 36 E., Greenville, Ohio, on Friday, July 13 at 6:30 pm. Sponsored by Matt & Angie Arnold, Tom & Jennifer Bish, George and Becky Luce and Dr. Robert & Jean McLear, this outdoor event is casual and family-friendly with lots of great food, drinks, and of course since it is an arts event, a great band!

According to a DCCA representative, Darke County Center for the Arts has come to rely on fundraisers as a significant source of funding. Monies generated from Barbecue and Blues will help offset the costs of presenting high quality performing artists throughout DCCA’s upcoming 2012/2013 season, for folks of all ages and economic spectrums to enjoy. Local sponsorship support of fundraising events is greatly appreciated and enables DCCA to continue encouraging cultural enrichment in Darke County and to offer opportunities for learning and growing through the arts.

Ray Fuller and The Blues Rockers out of Columbus Ohio are returning this year as the featured entertainment, bringing their fun rockabilly blues back to Darke County. Fuller’s impressive talents have allowed him to share the stage with Blues giants like Stevie Ray Vaughan, Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, and The Fabulous Thunderbirds.

The Thirsty Turtle Lounge will offer a Barbecue Buffet featuring pulled barbecue pork sandwiches, wings and chicken chunks with your choice of sauces, Carolina vegetable slaw, redskin potato salad, and pasta salad. The Buffet is $8 per person, $4.50 for children ages 12 and under; beverages are sold separately. Additionally, Ghyslain Chocolatier will be on-site with their famous gelatos and gourmet desserts, also sold separately.

Bring lawn chairs or blankets and lots of friends and family to this fun outdoor event. Admission price is $10 adult, $5 children ages 12 and under. Tickets may be purchased at Turtle Creek Golf Course, Readmore’s Hallmark in Greenville, or by contacting DCCA at 937-547-0908 or . Tickets will also be available at the door; however, advance sales are encouraged.
