Admission tickets are on sale now, $40 each.
The event will begin at 5pm, with a social time and punch bowl. A buffet dinner will begin at 5:30pm, followed by a program hosted by Captain Chris Aird. The program will include an update on the work of The Salvation Army in Renton, and a Q&A with local author Richard LeMieux (“Breakfast at Sally’s”). The concert will begin promptly at 7pm.
This year’s event will feature a concert by jazz trumpeter David Longoria. Mr. Longoria began playing the trumpet as a child while growing up in Renton. His first lessons and trumpet were free, from The Salvation Army.
