A local radio deejay has been named as the master of ceremonies for a Dawson Springs event.
“It’s Amore! Love Songs of the Decades” concert and dinner will have Tony Winfield as the emcee.
Winfield is the midday announcer on Oldies Radio WHVO FM 96.5 and 100.9. He will host the dinner and concert at 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 8, in the Dawson Springs Independent Schools multipurpose room.
The event is sponsored by Preserve Darby House, Inc., and the proceeds will benefit the Darby House, a welcome center and transportation museum in Dawson Springs, according to a news release from the group.
Tickets are $25 each or $40 per couple. Only 100 tickets are available.
The group is seeking funding to have a few rooms available for overnight accommodations. Showers and an HVAC unit is needed on the second floor, the release states. Grant money through HGTV is also being sought.
Taking the stage at the event are The Summer Girls (Melissa Heflin, Traci McKnight and Jenny Sewell), Gavin Sewell and violinist Josh Coffey. Some of the songs the musicians will perform are “Unforgettable,” “Can’t Help Falling in Love with You,” “Walking After Midnight” and “She’s in Love with the Boy.”
The menu for the dinner includes an Italian-style cuisine with homemade cakes. The room will be decorated with red and white linens and candlelight.
