The annual city wide garage sale will not be the only benefit for the Eudora Food Pantry on Saturday.
Mason Kelso, 16, will be holding a piano recital at the Eudora United Methodist Church Saturday afternoon at 2:00 PM. Kelso will be performing pieces from the classical, romantic and modern era in the hour long recital.
“I saw the need for donations for the Food Pantry,” Kelso said. “There is a greater need during the summer due to kids out of school and not able to get free or reduced school lunches.”
Kelso said the event will be casual and feature both liturgical and secular pieces.
“Ive never put on a full concert by myself,” Kelso stated. “I played some pieces at other recitals, but this will be the first time I’ve performed a entire recital.”
Donations of non-perishable items or cash are welcomed at the recital.
“I’m hoping to get enough (donations) to make a dent in the need,” Kelso said.
The Eudora United Methodist Church is located at 2084 N 1300 Road (20th Street, just west of Winchester Rd.).
