BENONA TWP. — The Little Point Sable Association (LPSA) is again teaming up with the Community Foundation for Oceana County to host “Trumpet Invasion!” — an evening of fine entertainment that is also an investment in Oceana County arts. The concert is set for Saturday, July 25, at 8 p.m. in the beautiful and acoustically fine LPSA “Stone” Church that’s located one mile west of Cherry Point Market near Silver Lake at Buchanan Road and Stone Church Road.

The concert features the popular father-son duo of Rich Ridenour (piano) and Brandon Ridenour (trumpet), and this is only the second time they have performed at the church. The special guest is violinist Barry Ross, a regular performer at the church. Each artist has a loyal following along the lakeshore.

This is the 12th annual benefit concert, and all proceeds will be added to the association’s “Arts for Oceana County Fund” under the Community Foundation for Oceana County. The event is expected to push the fund’s total assets to more than $100,000.

“This growing fund will help further the arts in Oceana for years to come,” said Foundation Director Tammy Carey. “It’s been such a pleasure working with our friends at LPSA, most of them being second home residents here. They were looking for a way to make a positive impact in Oceana, a community they love and return to each summer. It’s been a great partnership, with the LPSA’s arts fund contributing over $12,000 to arts programs serving Oceana residents since 2006.”

“We are so grateful for our generous donors and sponsors who have enabled this endowment fund to grow which in turn allows us to increase grants,”said Roy Wilson, concert chairperson.

The Little Point Sable-Arts for Oceana County Fund continues to award grants that support its goal of enriching Oceana’s artistic culture. The fund is making a major impact in 2015. The largest grant was awarded to the Jr. Strings summer camp program, which includes needed scholarships for Oceana students studying violin and cello. Two teacher mini-grants at Shelby

Public Schools provided ukuleles to third graders and tuners to the middle and high school bands. The Sable Points Lighthouse Keepers Association also received a grant to help support the “Night at the Lights” music program – providing musical entertainment on Wednesday nights this summer at Little Sable Point Lighthouse.

The concert is open to the public and tickets and sponsorships for the concert can be obtained by calling the Community Foundation of Oceana County at 231-861-8335.
