Party for PPG Tonight!

A Night of Poetry and Song on July 14

Some of Buffalo’s finest musicians and poets will perform at a party to benefit the Partnership for the Public Good on Thursday July 14, 2011 at Buffalo Seminary’s West-Chester Hall, 205 Bidwell Parkway, Buffalo.

The evening begins at 7:00 pm with a social hour featuring wine, beer, and light desserts.  At 8:00 pm, a striking array of local writers will read: Ansie Baird, Sally Fiedler, Ann Goldsmith, Barbara Hart, Paul Hogan, Olga Karman, Michael Kelleher, Sam Magavern, and Gary Earl Ross.  At 9:00 pm, the music starts, with Buck Quigley, Rodney Appleby and Zoe Viola, Daughters of Creative Sound, and Tom Maynor and Nathan Montague.

Donations start at $25.  Walk-ins welcome, but an RSVP to megan@ppgbuffalo.org is encouraged.

The Partnership for the Public Good unites over 90 community organizations interested in public policies that benefit the Buffalo region.  It has provided research and advocacy on many local issues, including the redevelopment of Canal Side, the Erie County Holding Center, arts and culture funding, and the green redevelopment of Buffalo’s neighborhoods.

According to PPG co-director Sam Magavern, “One of the things PPG promotes is building on our city’s assets, and this party will showcase one of our greatest assets: our thriving arts scene.”
