Branson stars to perform for Habitat

Monday, March 1, 2010

The Hughes Brothers, the Tony Turner Band and solo performer Bob Nichols, some of Branson's finest talent, will be featured at a March 27 event to benefit the Monett/Purdy affiliate of Habitat For Humanity.

According to co-chairs Phyllis Garrett and Bill VanEaton, the benefit dinner and show will be held on Saturday, March 27 at Hill Creek Lodge near Pulaskifield. A social hour with appetizers will begin at 6 p.m. followed by dinner at 7 p.m. A silent auction will also be held.

"We feel very fortunate to have such wonderful entertainment available," Garrett said, "and we are grateful to Monett native Bob Nichols for his help in bringing the best of Branson to our community."

Long regarded as one of Branson's premier vocal ensembles, the Hughes Brothers show has been voted "Branson's Best Morning Show" and the group has just been selected as "Branson's Best Vocal Group."

The Tony Turner Band is truly a Branson classic, performing not only in Branson, but around the country with a diverse mix of entertaining and danceable sounds. The band's repertoire includes music of virtually every style from the 1940s to the present.

"Tickets are $25 each," VanEaton said, "and all proceeds from the benefit will go to support the work of the local Habitat For Humanity organization. Tickets may be purchased from any Habitat board member and at United Missouri Bank, Community National Bank and First State Bank of Monett."

"Income from the March 27 event will help us build our fifth Habitat house," Garrett reported. "Ticket holders will not only enjoy a fun evening with good food and star-studded entertainment at a very reasonable price, but they will have the satisfaction of helping a worthy cause."

The Habitat benefit dinner is supported in part by Thrivent Financial For Lutherans.
