An Easter Seals Milestone

There is an atmosphere of celebration at Easter Seals of Central Texas, and with good reason. It's their 75th year of providing services to both children and adults with disabilities and their families.

An occasion like this deserves a big splash, and ESCT is making the most of the opportunity. Since Austin is known as the Live Music Capital of the World, the nonprofit will host its first benefit concert Friday, September 28 at the Shoal Crossing Event Center, 8511 North Mopac.

Doors for VIP ticketholders will open at 6:30 Pm, and the evening will commence with a VIP reception from 7 to 8, featuring music from Karl Morgan, a blues guitarist and singer/songwriter. Morgan hails from western Austrailia, but has played in and around Austin since 2008. He entertains his audiences with the soulful sounds of blues and soul tunes from the 60s and 70s. Attendees for this intimate performance will receive appetizers and drink tickets.

At 8 Pm, doors will open for the night's 8:30 headliner,

The Eggmen. Austin's most well-known Beatles tribute band has won numerous awards, wowing audiences with a unique blend of songs from the Beatles era, authentic instruments and costume changes.

Everyone is encouraged to come decked out in their favorite Beatles-style attire and dance the night away. Prizes will be awarded to the best-dressed.

Tickets for this can't-miss event are $75 VIP, $30 general admission and $15 for currently enrolled students. Get yours online at:
