Support Preservation Hall This Spring!

Going out to eat this spring? Wellfleet Preservation Hall is raising money, and several local businesses are participating in fund-raisers for our new community center, so don't miss out on the opportunity to support WPH. Moby Dick's Restaurant will contribute a portion of proceeds from lunch and dinner every Thursday in May. Finely JPs is organizing a dinner dance on May 1st. The buffet dinner from 6 to 8 costs $20. $15 provides access to the dance floor, with a real DJ spinning records, a highly unusual event for Wellfleet, so plan to bring your dancing shoes and sign up early. May 24th, the John Jorgenson Quintet will perform at the Congregational Church. (Jorgenson is known as one of the pioneers of the American gypsy jazz movement.) The concert starts at 8 p.m. This same church will resonate with chamber music on July 18th, 9 pm, with a benefit performance by IBIS that will follow a champagne reception. Can't wait for these events? Attend Tea & Tulips today, Sunday, April 19th, 4 to 6, at a spectacular art-filled private home for a contribution of $25. Tea & Tulips sold out last year, so reserve now by contacting Nicholas at Wellfleet Preservation Hall dot org. If you cannot make any of these events, you can still support WPH by making a tax-deductible contribution here.
