Beginning at 6 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 20, McInnis will host a beach music concert and dance at the Rockingham National Guard Armory. Music begins at 7 p.m. from Jim Quick and The Coastline Band, recognized as a premier beach band in the south. Doors open at 6 p.m. with free hot dogs and drinks while they last.

This is a family-friendly event and no alcohol will be served or allowed.

Cost of admission is $5 per person or two cans of non-perishable food — all of which will be donated to the Place of Grace tent ministry operated by New Life Church on Airport Road in East Rockingham.

“This will be a fun-filled evening with music, dancing and food while we support our homeless citizens in our area,” McInnis said.

Tickets can be purchased by making a donation of $5 per ticket on the McInnis for State Senate Facebook page or at the door. Those wishing to attend can bring their two canned good items to the door.
