The fourth annual Coffeehouse for a Cause will feature musical talent from three counties taking the stage Nov. 15 in the fellowship hall of St. Paul's Independent Church, 5010 St. Paul's Road, Millers.
The doors – and the kitchen – will open at 6 p.m., when Frank Cappadora, of Manchester, will kick off the evening of entertainment with lively pieces on the piano and accordion. While he plays, guests can select their refreshments and be seated at candlelit tables decorated for autumn.
Admission, food and beverages are free, but donations are requested for this year's causes: the Blessings Post and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
The benefit event will continue until about 9 p.m., with instrumental and vocal performances representing a range of musical genres – from bluegrass to spiritual songs to jazz.
The performers include: Kaycee and Blaine Nelson, of Westminster; Janet Stratton and Scott Shumaker, of Parkton; Nick Cappadora, Pat Brynes and Zach Leonardi, all of Manchester; Lorna Terry, of Owings Mills; Zachary Brillhart, of Hanover, Pa.; Emily Ogg, of Glenville, Pa.; and Katie Ritter, of Hanover, Pa.
Second Generation Bluegrass Band will close the program with gospel and bluegrass music.
During the event, barbecue sandwiches, hot dogs, snacks, desserts and sodas will be available. Freewill donations received for this fare will go to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Complimentary coffee, hot tea and cider will be served.
The Blessings Post, an outreach ministry of Alesia Free Methodist Church, serves local residents in need by offering non-food necessities such as: laundry detergent, shampoo, dish soap, deodorant, toothpaste and paper products. Such items may be contributed at the coffeehouse.
In addition, financial donations will be accepted at the door for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
