Free & Eazy Group Returns To Benefit Talbot Mentors

The Free & Eazy Group will perform a benefit concert for Talbot Mentors on Thursday, August 23rd, at 7:30 p.m. at the Avalon Theatre in Easton. This is the third consecutive year that the local band has supported the mentoring organization with its 1920s and ’30s music. New at this year’s concert will be featured dance performances by Talbot Tappers and Dancing on the Shore.

Tickets are $25 each and include hors d’oeuvres, dancing and door prizes. A cash bar is available, and a raffle offers opportunities for further support of the organization.

Talbot Mentors Program Coordinator Jessika Best encourages early reservations. “This event has become very popular and last year’s concert sold out,” she said. A special option also is available this year for groups. There will be a limited amount of cabaret-style seating. Tables may be reserved for an additional $50 and a minimum purchase of six tickets.

Best thanked event sponsor Fred Frederick Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Easton, and Hill’s Soda Fountain Café for additional support. She also expressed her appreciation to Lee Phillips and Dick Nolker of the Free & Eazy Group for their planning assistance and to Nathalie Derakshani and Paulette Florio for coordinating the dance numbers.

Tickets are available through the Talbot Mentors office by calling 410-770-5999. Additional concert sponsors, with recognition at the event, are welcome in support of the children of Talbot County.

For more information, to reserve tickets, or to volunteer as a mentor, call Talbot Mentors at 410-770-5999 or visit
