Niagara Gazette — As Western New York anxiously awaits the arrival of spring, the Ransomville Free Methodist Church is gearing up to celebrate winter’s end in high style.
Hosting a Night on the Town is the church’s way of giving back to the Ransomville area and showing that they are a “positive representation of what a church should be,” according to the event coordinator Bob Moore.
“We’ve done an annual event in the summer time for 10 years straight which usually brings around 1,200 guests,” Moore said. “We did an event in the spring eight years ago, so we thought we’d try it again.”
Moore described this event as a high-quality, low-cost, family friendly event. While the event is open to the public, the $15 tickets are in limited supply and can only be purchased in advance.
In exchange for their $15, participants will receive a meal catered by the local Johnston’s Restaurant. Before dinner is served at 7 p.m., guests will be able to enjoy snacks and drinks while they listen to a performance by guitarist Joe Webber.
Once dinner is served, guests will enjoy and hour and fifteen minute performance of contemporary music by Keri Cardinale and the Soul Purpose Band. According to Moore they will be playing both original music and popular cover songs.
“I came across the Soul Purpose Band eight years ago,” he said. “They have an incredibly professional sound, and Keri’s voice is just amazing, really genuine.”
While guests enjoy desert they will be treated to a show by comedian Jeff Wozer, of Denver. Wozer, who is on the club and corporate circuits, has a clean, family friendly act, according to Moore.
The Night on the Town will be held on April 5 at the Ransomville Fire Hall, 2521 Youngstown Lockport Road, Ransomville. Doors open at 5 p.m. The event starts at 6 p.m. Tickets are pre-sale only and can be purchased up until March 29 either at www.rfmconnect.org (click on the Night on the Town link at the top of the page) or by phone. Moore can be reached for tickets at 504-7208. The phone number for the Ransomville Free Methodist church is 791-3855.
“I would encourage people to come out,” said Moore. “It’s such a high quality event. They wont regret it.”
