There’s no shortage of fundraisers this time of year, but the Rockfish Valley Community Center is making strides to make its stand way out from the crowd.

After several years of pairing the eclectic silent auction with dinner and an evening of jazz, this year attendees of the annual event will be treated to a concert by nationally-known singer, songwriter and folk musician Jesse Winchester.

Winchester, who is best known for hits including “Yankee Lady” and “The Brand New Tennessee Waltz,” will be performing after a dinner catered by Claudia Gibson in a concert-setting at the Nov. 7 event.

After a 3-course dinner and silent auction featuring items from The Treasure Chest, local businesses and individuals, Winchester will take the stage in support of the community center’s increasing expenses. In addition to several renovation projects and keeping the building up to code, the RVCC is always working on new projects. Just this year, the organization has added a playground and the first stage of a community skate park to its facilities.

The RVCC is a vital part of the Nelson County community, said the nonprofit’s board of directors secretary Pat Gooch, and Wintchester’s concert will definitely help to bring a little worthy attention to the community center.

“I’m hoping it’ll be a draw for some new folks who will discover the community center for the first time because they’re Jesse Winchester fans,” she said. “They’ll come down to our valley and discover what a nice litter community center we have.”
