A portion of sales to benefit Family Promise of Greater Roanoke.

Registration begins Sept. 1.


Join Roanoke College for an after-five cultural collaborative. Culture 4 a Cause is a fun and informative evening fusing art, music and haute cuisine with a cause to raise awareness of homelessness. The evening’s fundraising efforts will benefit Family Promise of Greater Roanoke. Enjoy an art exhibit by visiting artist Willie Baronet, entertainment by the Gypsy Weed band, and food and spirits by Roanoke College Catering.

This inaugural Culture 4 a Cause benefit is part of a featured exhibit of the Olin Hall Smoyer Gallery. Baronet's exhibit, Signs of Humanity, is a project that developed into a social advocacy platform bringing awareness to homelessness. Culture 4 a Cause will support the local efforts of building communities and strengthening lives through Family Promise of Greater Roanoke. Family Promise empowers homeless families with children to achieve sustainable independence through a community-based response.

The evening will feature Gypsy-style classic jazz at 6 p.m. with the band, The Gypsy Weed. Musicians Steven Paul, Bob Casey and JT Thisdell will play hot club instruments from the 1930’s and 1940’s, along with some hybridized fiddle tunes. Food will include flavorful tacos & tequila, with tacos made with Cuban pork, Baja shrimp and grilled veggies with goat cheese, designed by Roanoke College Chef Matt Phillips. One drink per person is included with admittance. There will be a cash bar, with a portion of bar sales going to Family Promise.

This event is co-sponsored by Olin Hall Galleries and Community Programs.
