Evening’s entertainment to benefit at-risk children’s music program

An event benefiting the MusicWorks! program for children in Harlem Heights will be held from 5:30-9 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 8 at The Heights Center, 15570 Hagie Drive in Fort Myers. Guests will enjoy live entertainment, cocktails, heavy hors d’oeuvres, a live auction and a performance by the MusicWorks! students.

All proceeds will benefit the Music- Works! program at The Heights Center. MusicWorks! was launched in 2015 by the Gulf Coast Symphony and provides daily instruction in string, woodwind, brass and percussion instruments to underserved youth in the Harlem Heights neighborhood.

“We have seen a transformation in the lives of our MusicWorks! Students over the past 2 years, not only in their musical development, but also in their improved academic grades, self-esteem and behavior,” said Dr. Andrew Kurtz, music and executive director of The Gulf Coast Symphony.

Tickets are $75 each and space is limited. Purchase tickets at www.heightsfoundation.org/beautifulmusic or call Karen Lesza at 482-7706. ¦
