Blues fest fund-raiser set

February 22, 1999

The annual Hagerstown Blues Fest fund-raiser will be Thursday, March 25, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Ramada Inn on Dual Highway, Hagerstown Public Information Manager Karen Giffin said Monday.

Tickets for the event are $5 and will be available at the door.

Featured entertainment will be The Daryl Davis Band.

The fund-raiser is expected to raise about $400 for the summertime festival, which costs between $90,000 and $100,000 to put on.

Giffin said the March event is more of "an awareness builder" for the Blues Fest.

An estimated 16,000 people attended the Blues Fest last year.

The fourth annual Blues Fest is scheduled for June 4, 5, and 6.

Tickets for the first night's activities are on sale at the Maryland Theatre, Giffin said.
