St. Charles Community College Foundation Rhythm and Ribs
The St. Charles Community College Foundation’s fourth annual Rhythm and Ribs fundraiser, with live music, food and dancing, is set for 6-10 p.m. Friday, May 10, on the college’s campus in Cottleville.
Smash Band will return, live on the main stage at 8:30 p.m. Doors will open at 6 p.m. with the St. Charles West Jazz Ensemble. At 7 p.m., the rhythm revue hour will include a feature performance by the popular St. Charles-based acoustic/rock band, “Clockwork,” with SCC student Jordan Slone (guitar/vocals). Performances by up-and-coming vocalists Aurea Clark and Matt Wynn also will entertain the crowd. All three performers were recent contestants in the college’s own “SCC Idol” competition last fall, and Slone won the competition, receiving the grand prize of a scholarship from the SCC Foundation.
Rib vendors will include Ethyl’s Smokehouse and Saloon, Mannino’s Market, Rib City and Stumpy’s House of Bar-B-Que and Catering. Other fare will include popcorn and snow cones, with gourmet nachos and veggie burgers provided by Quintessential Catering, and beverages to include beer by Krey Distributing Company and O’Fallon Brewery, wine by Terra Firma USA and lemonade by Red Robin.
