PIERCETON — The Pierceton Chamber of Commerce partnered with Lifeline Youth and Family Services for an Elegant Evening of Jazz accompanied by delicious food, drinks and a silent auction in Pierceton.
Pierceton’s Wine & Jazz event was held at the Old Train Depot, one of Pierceton’s premiere event locations, on April 22. Guests enjoyed jazz music provided by the Kevin Piekarski Jazz Trio, a wine and craft beer tasting and a beautiful arrangement of hors d’oeuvres created and served by The Old Train Depot. A silent auction of items and special gift packages donated from the local community were available for guests to bid on and take home.
This year, Lifeline Youth & Family services provided a collection of handcrafted furniture built through the vocation program at Pierceton Woods Academy, a residential facility for troubled young boys and men located on the north side of Pierceton.
Over $1,700 was raised during the event. Proceeds will be shared between The Pierceton Chamber of Commerce and Lifeline. The Chamber of Commerce will use funds for upcoming festivals, beautifying local parks and other town expenses to benefit the community. Lifeline will designate these funds to Pierceton Woods Academy’s vocational program to continue teaching woodworking skills to their residents.
The Pierceton Chamber of Commerce is a voice for business, organizational and economic growth of the community. We are the community’s best advocate for improving our overall environment. We want to move Pierceton forward!
For nearly 50 years, Lifeline Youth & Family Services has been strengthening children and families who have been impacted by abuse, neglect, and delinquency—arguably the most vulnerable in our community. Lifeline works directly with nearly 4,000 Hoosier families, many of which come directly from the Department of Child Services. Together we’re helping individuals succeed, families thrive and communities prosper.
“As a part of the Pierceton community, we are happy to partner with the Pierceton Chamber of Commerce. We’re looking forward to continuing our good relationship with our neighbors and investing in the community around us.” said Joseph Gough, Vice President of Residential Services at Lifeline
