It is almost time for another BMEF event! Mark your calendars, order your tickets, round up your nonperishable food items, and get your pocketbooks ready for the silent auction. We are sharing the date, November 17th, with the city of Moundsville. That is the date of Moundsville's Christmas parade. However, you will already be out and about. Hop on down to the Strand Theatre to top off your evening with a family-friendly concert with our headliner, Crandall Creek. The local group, Bridges, will be playing before them. Local legend, Roger Hoard will be opening our show. Also, Stevie Lynn and Bruce Winges will be performing a few special numbers with Crandall Creek.

BMEF's purpose is to raise money to donate to other charities. However, due to a lack of sponsorship, we need to take a little time to take care of ourselves. BMEF will be our beneficiary for this concert. We assure you that none of the proceeds will be going into anyone's pockets. We will be using the money to replenish our funds so we can continue doing what we do, Pickin' and a Givin'.

That being said, we do want to thank all of the area businesses and individuals who have sponsored our concerts in the past. A special thank you goes out to Minnesota Limited for their donation to this event.

Also, thank you to all those who help put these events together and who are key to the nights of the all know who you are. If you are wondering if you are one of those individuals, you probably are.

So, come on out November 17th at 7:30, after the Moundsville Christmas parade. Tickets are $10 for ages 13 and up, $5 for ages 5-12, and free for children under 5.
