The banners promoting a special fundraiser for the theater arts and music programs at Barrington High School have gone up on County Road.
The Town Council approved the hanging of the banners promoting “Spotlight on the Arts” at its most recent meeting.
The June 14 event is part of the Barrington Education Foundation’s 20th anniversary celebration. It runs from 7 to 10 pm at the Rhode Island Country Club.
Proceeds from the event will launch an “arts enrichment campaign” that is targeting the purchase of new lighting and rigging equipment for the auditorium stage. The campaign goal is $36,000, according to Maureen Johnson, event chair.
The event includes hors d’oeuvres and cocktails with an array of entertainment, including the Barrington High School Woodwind Quartet, Jazz Band, and Choral Ensemble and the Stagemasters drama club. Pat McGee of Barrington, a noted songwriter and singer, will be a special guest.
Tickets are $50 per person. You can register online at the BEF website. The deadline is June 7.
