Officials of the Tyrone-Snyder Township Public Library have announced the tri-hosts for the seventh annual library fund raising concert event.
“Last year, we had co-hosts for the event,” said concert chairman, Chuck Banas. “We had American Eagle Paper Company and Healthy Alternatives step up and be the first corporate co-hosts for this event.”
This year, there will be three local corporations that will be tri-hosting the annual library concert fund raising event. This year’s tri-hosts are Albemarle Corp., Gardners Candies and M&T Bank.
“On behalf of the board of directors of the Tyrone-Snyder Township Public Library I wish to thank Albemarle, Gardners Candies and M&T Bank for coming out this year as our tri-hosts for our annual event. Their support will go a long way in making this year’s event a big success,” stated Banas.
“I think it’s a terrific function and a great way to help the library,” said Gardners Candies President, Sam Phillips. “The Gardners employees look forward to the event every year.”
Albemarle Human Resources Manager Tom Getz added, “Albemarle always try to support the community in as many ways as we can and that includes supporting the library.”
Branch Manager of M&T Bank Fran Brunhuber added that M&T is happy to have been able to support the library and will continue to do so on an ongoing basis.
This year’s concert, “A Salute to the Legends,” will be held on Saturday evening, April 19 at the Tyrone Area High School Auditorium. The doors will open promptly at 6:30 p.m. and the show will begin at 7 p.m. sharp.
Tickets for this year’s concert will go on sale today, Saturday, February 23 at the following ticket locations in Tyrone: Bressler’s Food Mart & Sports, Kopp Drug and the Tyrone-Snyder Township Public Library in downtown Tyrone.
The tickets may also be ordered by telephone by calling a special ticket order number at 682-1017 during regular library hours. If you call for tickets after hours, simply leave your name and telephone number and the reason you called. Your call will be returned during the next business day, and your ticket orders will be taken.
“This past week we have begun taking the orders from our corporate sponsors who buy ads for our program as well as the blocks of tickets. This year our support is running very high. We are also getting calls from people who are not willing to wait to secure their concert tickets. Our suggestion is get your tickets as early as possible in order to be located in the front half of the auditorium,” Banas added.
All of the funds raised for the concert are used to offset the payment of the mortgage on the new library. To date, these concerts have raised over $53,000 while moving towards a goal of $100,000.
Next week, The Daily Herald will have additional information regarding this year’s big community event.
