Goff House Board Thanks Sponsors, Bands and Audience Members

Another Joseph N. Goff House Gazebo Concert Series has been completed this summer, which included six, free, Thursday night concerts at the Center School Gazebo in the East Hampton Village Center. Members of the Goff House Board of Directors would like to thank all the talented bands who provided music, rain or shine, and the faithful audience members who turned out to enjoy the shows together. 

Donations by audience members during the half time basket collection resulted in monetary donations that have been  distributed to Cub Scout Pack 8, The East Hampton High School Music Department, Lydia's Closet, The East Hampton Ambulance Association and The Congregational Church of East Hampton. 

Without the support and sponsorship of many local residents, organizations and businesses, the concert series could not continue. Since the series began 21 years ago, The Congregational Church of East Hampton has been open to concert goers for bathroom use and a rain location. Cub Scout Pack 8 members and leaders sell snacks and beverages as a fundraiser for their activities and initiatives. Belltown Graphics produced the design for the 2018 concert publicity posters and post cards, which included artwork created by the late Katherine Berlin, provided by her husband Robert Berlin. 

Chorus Sponsors for 2018 include Fowler's Auto Wrecking BRC, MIMI Design, Nancy & Bill Pope, Paul & Elaine Puzzo, Kevin & Matthew Reich, Villageat82main.com; Soprano Sponsors include American Distilling, Anchor Lodge #112 EH Masons, Barber & Associates, LLC, Katherine Berlin - The Art Alcove, DMR Automotive & Performance, East Hampton Lions Club, H2O Equipment Co., The Markham Family, Paul's & Sandy's Too, Pizzeria DaVinci Cobalt, Rick's Sugar Shack; Alto Sponsors include All About Blinds, The Bernard-Florindo Family, Classic Auto, Higher Grounds at 32 Main, Linda & David May, Nelson's Family Campground; Tenor Sponsors include Bernheimer-Lincoln Insurance, Center Package Store, Chatham Wine Thieve, The DeMore Family, Markham Meadows Campground, The Robinson Family, Suburban Sanitation Services, Team Fitness; Bass Sponsors include Kyle &  Mary Ann Dostaler, Lucky Goat Butcher Shop, ReNu Hair Studio.
