Mark and Anne Gorman of Newport will be hosting their 8th Annual Singing For Shelter acoustic Christmas concert, for the benefit of Lucy’s Hearth and The McKinney Shelter.

The 8th Annual Singing For Shelter will take place on Thursday, December 3, 2015 from 7:00-9:30 PM (doors at 6:30) at Channing Memorial Church, 135 Pelham Street, Newport, RI.

SINGING FOR SHELTER is a Christmas In Newport event.

Many of Aquidneck Island’s fine musicians join together every year to raise money for the area’s homeless shelters. This year’s performers include: Jimmy Winters, Tom Perrotti, Slackwater String Band, Chief Noda, Rand Bradbury, ZanRicky, The Blenders, John Monllos and Joanne Rodino, Alan Bernstein, Mike Coffey, John Previdini, Ed Ledwith, In Tandem, Chris and Diane Myers and The Rocco’s Pizza All Stars.

“As musicians, we’re all honored to do our part to try and alleviate homelessness. This winter promises to be a harsh one, so we’re asking all of Aquidneck Island friends to once again come out and support this great night of music for a great cause,” Gorman said.

“Lucy’s Hearth and The McKinney Shelter do a wonderful job of providing temporary housing for our homeless population. Singing For Shelter allows these local musicians to support the great work done by these shelters,” Gorman continued.

Tickets are $15. (Children w/adult free) For tickets: call 401-849-4250 or email
