The doors will open at 7 p.m., with the concert starting at 8 p.m. Tickets are $25 and include beverages and food for those 21 and older. Tickets will be available at the door.

The non-profit Laurel Community Foundation was founded in 2002 to enhance the educational experiences of Laurel School District students. Since its inception, the foundation has granted in excess of $70,000 to district teachers to fund classroom projects.

In addition, scholarships are awarded to students with outstanding senior projects and a Super Spartan Award is presented to an outstanding student who excels not only in the classroom, but in the community.

Proceeds from Saturday’s fundraiser will help the Laurel Community Foundation carry on its work in the school district.
