Each year the Twelfth Night Charity presents a concert of free family entertainment for the entire community. This year’s performance featured The Grascals bluegrass band. The Grascals have garnered 3 GRAMMY nominations, 2 IBMA Entertainer of the Year awards, late-night TV appearances, frequent guest appearances on The Grand Ole Opry over The Grascals 15 years together. With the release of their latest Mountain Home collection, Straighten The Curves, on August 30th, the veteran ensemble shows that they’re moving full speed ahead toward new horizons.
The concert is held on the first Saturday in January. Attendees are asked to make cash and/or packaged food donations at the concert. These gifts will go to support two charities: the Botetourt Food Pantry and the Botetourt County Social Services’ Energy Assistance Program. Cash donations will be divided between the two charities. Food donations are given to the Botetourt Food Pantry. All concert workers are volunteers.
We will post next year's (2021) performer when we have that information. Check back!
Each year in the fall in late September or early October on a Saturday starting at 4pm and finishing up at around 7pm, St. Mark's Episcopal Church holds its annual Spaghetti Dinner. Proceeds from the dinner go to benefit area charities.
Dinners usually cost around $10 for adults and children ages 12 and over. Dinners are also available for take out.
The meal includes a full portion of home-made spaghetti, salad, garlic bread, lemonade, ice tea, and a variety of home-made desserts.
