Oceanside CA– The date for the OMFest Fundraising Gala has been changed. The new date is October 25, 2014.
“Bond, Just Bond!’ is the theme for this year’s Oceanside Music Fest Scholarship Fundraiser, October 25, 6:00 pm to 8:30pm at the Oceanside Museum of Art.
In the spirit of the evening all guests are encouraged to come as their favorite James Bond, or Bond character. Prizes will be awarded.
During the cocktail hour guests will enjoy an international ‘Casino Royale’ spread of hors d’ oeuvres donated by Veneto’s, El Torito, Pick Up Sticks, Fresh and Easy, and Ralph’s, and signature ‘Goldfinger-tinis’ and SkyFall-tinis, served in souvenir martini glasses, while enjoying the smooth jazz sounds of “Bonded”.
The entertainment program will open with special number featuring the “Bond Ladies”. Other scheduled performers include 13 year old dance phenom, Lauren Witte, 14 year old singing sensation, Shelby Sanborn and singer songwriter Taylor Tickner.
One of the highlights of the evening promises to be the presentation of the Oceanside Cultural Arts Foundation’s 2014 Honoree Award to Mark Phelps, jazz musician and long time Instrumental Music instructor at Oceanside High, for his lasting contributions in promoting music and the arts in North County.
