Lebanon Soup Kitchen to Benefit from Christmas Concert

at the Aziz Home in Lebanon

On Sunday November 25th Grammy nominated singer-songwriter Judy Pancoast will be presenting an outdoor Christmas concert at the Aziz home also known as Cascade Christmas Lights at 312 E Sherman Street.  The public is invited free of charge, but attendees are asked to bring a donation or non perishable food items for the Lebanon Soup Kitchen.

Pancoast is visiting Lebanon as part of her third annual “The House on Christmas Street International Tour,” in support of her new CD, “Christmas with Mrs. Claus.” Concerts on the tour are performed on the lawns and in the driveways of the decorating enthusiasts who have become her biggest fans and use her music in their animated lighting displays.  The Aziz home is well known in the area for its magnificent annual display.  This is the first year that they have hosted Pancoast’s tour.

The Cascade Christmas Lights is in it's third year and last year the community donated over $1,300 in cash and 500 pounds of food. The Soup Kitchen helps feed local families in need. Recently they have been seeing an increase in children up to 25-30 per night.

Singer-songwriter Judy Pancoast is well-known among families for her four albums of original music for children and her outrageously fun family concerts.  She was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Children’s Album in 2011 for her CD, “Weird Things are Everywhere!”.

Pancoast’s concert in Lebanon will feature original songs from her two Christmas CDs as well as traditional favorites and sing-a-longs and is sure to put you and your family in a festive mood for Christmas.  After the concert, Pancoast invites attendees for a “meet and greet” during which she will sign autographs, pose for photos and offer CDs and tour tee shirts for sale. Ten percent of the proceeds from her sales will also benefit The Lebanon Soup Kitchen.

"Dawn and I are excited to have Judy come all the way from the East Coast to Visit Lebanon and our display. We hope it will bring donations and awareness for the soup kitchen," said Aziz.

The concert begins at 6pm on Sunday November 25th (thanksgiving weekend) at Cascade Christmas Lights Display, 312 E Sherman Street, Lebanon. There will be special treats for the children.

Parking is available at the Elks parking lot on the corner of Sherman and Grove. There will be some seating, but folks are asked to bring a folding chair if possible.

Judy will also be performing a free concert at the Lebanon Library the following night, Monday November 26th at 7pm. The Library Concert is Free and folks are asked to bring a donation or non perishable food items.
