Pearson Lakes Art Center to hold Fall Fundraiser September 10 

The Pearson Lakes Art Center will hold a Fall Fundraiser and Concert on September 10.  Executive Director Bob Kirschbaum says, the event is designed to help raise funds for new outdoor sound equipment.  "With the COVID, that changes everything around and, to me, The Art Center is the community's art center, and since we couldn't have the shows inside, we thought we really owe it to our community to provide something.  But, to be able to pull that off, we were looking at renting, and we ended up coming across some equipment that cost us a nice sum of money, it wasn't in our budget, but we went out on a limb and purchased it and we've had a fun, entertaining summer under the circumstances."

He adds that entertainment will be provided by the Borderline Outlaws"It used to be the Jesse James Outlaws, and they're going to have a special guest, Terry Klein is going to be performing with them.  It's going to be a free concert, but all donations will go to help pay for the equipment, and the Pearson Foundation stepped up, and they are going to match all donations."

The fundraiser will start at 7 o'clock on September 10.
