The annual Havelock Heritage Blues Festival and Reverse Raffle is scheduled for 7 p.m. Friday at the Havelock Tourist and Event Center.
The event serves as the largest fundraiser of the year for the Havelock-Cherry Point Rotary Club, which puts on the concert and raffle along with the Havelock Chamber of Commerce.
Proceeds go toward the Rotary club’s college scholarship program, the Coins for Alzheimer’s Research Trust, Polio Plus and local nonprofit groups through the Havelock chamber and Rotary club.
Reverse raffle tickets are $150 each and include admission for two for the concert and the chance to win the grand prize of $5,000.
The reverse raffle tickets will be drawn during the concert, with the final winner being drawn after the performance.
Individual concert tickets are available in advance for $25 at the Havelock Chamber of Commerce, located inside the Havelock Tourist and Event Center. Tickets will also be available at the door.
A barbecue dinner will be provided as part of the admission price.
Scheduled to perform at this year’s concert are Captain Luke, Big Ron Hunter and Cool John Ferguson, all of whom are associated with the Music Maker Relief Foundation.
