Melissa’s Place Benefit Concert and Live Auction

Thursday, February 16, 2017

from 3:00pm until 6:00pm

LOCATION: Wharf Event Center, 4671 Wharf Pkwy., Orange Beach, AL 36561

On February 16, 2017, a benefit concert and live auction will be held in the Wharf Event Center in Orange Beach, Alabama. All proceeds go towards completing construction of Melissa’s Place, an orphanage being built in Haiti for girls 5 to 16 years old. In addition to the music of The Coachmen and Wojamm travelling here for this event, Gulf Coast locals Lisa Christian, Mac Walter and Shelby Brown (recently seen on The Voice) will perform. During the intermission of this great benefit concert, a LIVE AUCTION will be held with proceeds also going to Melissa’s Place. Live Auction items can be paid for at the event with cash, check or credit card. 

A number of local businesses are participating by contributing products and services and “experiences” to be included in the LIVE AUCTION.  Items will include trip for 2 to Montana, 3 Night Beach Stay, Spa Packages, Private Gourmet Dinners and Golf Packages. Since the event (3:00pm – 6:00pm) takes place in the height of “Snowbird Season”, the majority of our audience (expected attendance 950) will be the Michigan and Iowa Snowbird Clubs and it is expected to be a sellout.  Admission tickets are only $10 in advance and $15 at the door and patrons are invited to BYOB.

Melissa’s Place is associated with The Paul Meyer’s Foundation, which is a 501C.

The donation of your service is tax deductible, and an official receipt will be provided for your records.
