The concert is free, but donations are welcome. The church is at 10936 Moon Lake Road. For information, call Pastor Lad Dubovsky at (727) 505-4880.


Theater's raffle to help SPCA

There will be a raffle for a gift basket with G-Force movie items in it, coupons for local businesses and more. In order to get a raffle ticket, children must bring an item to the theater to donate to the SPCA. The nonprofit animal shelter needs pet food, toys, treats, used-clean towels, blankets, and so on.
