Dock Street Foundation, the Mid-Shore Community Foundation, the Avalon Foundation, and Discover Easton will kick-off the celebration of Hopeful 2020 at 6:00 p.m, July 10 in Thompson Park, located at 30 W. Dover Street in Downtown Easton, instead of the Washington Street Promenade as was previously planned. The event will include the unveiling of two of the art sculptures located at the corner of Washington St. and Dover Rd. Two additional art sculptures are being erected at other locations in Easton this week.
Robbie Schaefer, a musician, songwriter, and playwright devoted to service through the arts will open the celebration in Thompson Park at 6 p.m., followed by a brief unveiling ceremony around 6:45 p.m. Schaefer is the guitarist and songwriter for the indie folk band Eddie From Ohio, winners of seven Wammie Awards. As a solo performer Robbie has shared the stage with Sara Bareilles, Jason Mraz, Josh Groban, Michael McDonald, Keb’ Mo and Emmylou Harris, among others. He also founded OneVoice, an international non-profit devoted to uniting and empowering youth through music and the creative arts.
Contributions to the Mid-Shore Community Foundation’s Covid-19 Response Fund support nonprofit organizations that provide food, shelter and health services to Talbot County’s underserved residents.
