The Hot Flashes – a group of “young-at-heart” women from the Pemberville-Bowling Green area – will be joining forces with the local Pemberville Churches to present “A Good Samaritan Christmas Concert” Sunday, Dec. 16 at 3 p.m. at the Eastwood High School Auditorium.

Audiences can always expect a great time with The Hot Flashes, who put their own stamp on `50s and `60s Doo Wop.

The group will present their Christmas program with some surprises and several new additions, including an appearance by the Eastwood Jazz Band, a silent auction for more than 30 baskets of gifts and refreshments consisting of homemade cookies and candies.

The concert will benefit the Good Samaritan Fund and Community Food Pantry, which helps with food items,  prescriptions and utility bill shut-offs for those in need in the Eastwood School District.

This year, the Fund has received a challenge grant from Thrivent Financial Foundation which will match 50 cents for every dollar raised up to $10,000.

Admission to the concert is free, however, a freewill offering will be collected.

Doors will open at 2 p.m. to allow time for refreshments, fellowship and the silent auction before the concert. For more information, call Carol Bailey at 419-287-4848 or Kathy Brandt at 419-287-4182 Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.

The Hot Flashes’ “Good Samaritan Christmas Concert” will feature Christmas favorites and a few surprises. Funds raised will go to help individuals and families in need in the Eastwood community.
