5th Annual “A Night to Imagine”
Our 5th Annual “A Night to Imagine” March benefit is right around the corner and this year we have a twist for you. Because we have outgrown our space at the community center and are looking to grow our attendance, we are reimagining our benefit as a concert with a thoughtful and enjoyable entertainer. Accordingly, we are excited to announce that legendary singer and songwriter Ramblin’ Jack Elliott will be playing at this year’s event! As well, we will still be honoring a special someone with our annual “Art Hannafin Community Advocate” award.
All of this will take place on Friday, March 21, 2014 at Pipers Opera House in Virginia City, NV. Showtime will be from 7 to 9, doors will open at 5:45. A full beer and wine bar will also be available. We’re also working on securing discounts for attendees at local VC eateries and for lodging. Stay tuned! Click here to purchase tickets.

Ramblin’ Jack Elliott
As a budding musician, Jack developed his voice under the tutelage of Woodrow Wilson Guthrie, truck hitching across the country off and on for a couple of years with Woody, carrying “only razors and guitars.” But it is his relationship with a young Bob Dylan that Elliott is perhaps most famous for, though back in the 1960s the up-and-coming Dylan was often mistakenly dubbed the “son of Jack Elliott.” Today Elliott simply states ‘Dylan learned from me the same way I learned from Woody.’
To act as a catalyst for change and a center for resources to help people help themselves, as together we build strong and healthy families and communities.
