Free Concert in the Park slated for Sunday

Current American Idol contestant Kevin Gullage with Kevin and the Blues Groovers will entertain the crowd, along with several district students.

The St. Charles Public Schools Foundation, in partnership with the United Way of St. Charles, will host a free musical concert featuring local talent on Sunday, April 18.

Held at the West Bank Bridge Park in Luling from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m., the outdoor concert will feature music from the Kevin Gullage Band, Will Dempsey, Carlie Dalgo and T’nes Pierre.

The St. Charles Public School Foundation, run by a voluntary board of directors, is a non-profit corporation that raises money through grants, earmark donations, commemorative donations and events to provide grant opportunities to teachers for programs, books, activities and children’s needs. The foundation has been designated as a United Way Partner Agency.

Maureen Pizzolato, a St. Charles Parish Public Schools employee who sits on the foundation’s board as a school district representative, said the event is free to attend and that no tickets are needed.

All attendees are asked to bring their own chairs and refreshments, she said, adding that no concessions will be sold at the event.

Masks are encouraged at the event, as is social distancing. In the event of inclement weather, the concert will be held on April 25.

“United Way of St. Charles is happy to support the St. Charles Parish Public Schools Foundation,” UWSC Director of Community Impact Kacy Kernan said. “With one of our primary focus areas being education, we believe that our support of community pop-up events and grants for teachers benefit both the children and adults of our community. “

She said the United Way’s mission is to provide the community with an array of health and human services.

“While we recognize that during these trying times food distributions and funds assistance are a priority, we also believe events like this pop-up are a free way to bring families and the community together in a safe and rewarding way,” Kernan said.
