Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes will play in concert at the Daven Haven on Wednesday, Aug. 5. This great band will rock your socks off with a full accompaniment of guitars, bass, drums and horns.

Johnny and the boys are a favorite in Grand Lake. We all remember when they played for a fundraiser for Hurricane Katrina victims just one week after the storm. You’ll also be able to hear Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes again next weekend at Red Rocks.

Tickets are on sale for “Get your Ship Together,” a fundraising event for the Grand Arts Council. In addition to Sketch, the evening will feature a Gilligan’s Island costume contest for the best Gilligan’s Island Character: The Skipper, Gilligan, MaryAnn, Ginger, The Professor, Thurston Howell III, Mrs. Howell (Lovey). The doors will open at 6 p.m. for cocktails (cash bar) and a Daven Haven dinner special for only $15, and the band will start the entertainment at 8 p.m. Your call for reservations will be appreciated, 970-627-8144.

Another highlight of the evening will be the drawing to win the Hobie Sail Kayak, a Year of Three Lake’s Boating and four Night Puerto Vallarta vacation. To enter, look for the Grand Arts Council booth at this weekend’s craft fair in the Grand Lake Town Park. Drawing tickets cost a donation of $5 each or 5 for $20. Tickets to the concert only are $10. Contact the Daven Haven at 627-8144 or stop by the Grand Lake Art Gallery.

Sponsors for this great event are Daven Haven Lodge, The Anchorage in Lyons, Boater’s Choice, Highland Marina, and Power World/Trail Ridge Marina. Volunteers to tend the booth this weekend and sponsors are still needed. Call Jan Gamez at 627-9454. Proceeds benefit the Grand Arts Council.

In addition to the Grand Prizes, and Costume Contest, there will be other great prizes drawn from the admission tickets.

So get your ship together and come out for this fun evening of dancing and entertainment, all for a good cause. You don’t need to be present to win, but who would want to miss this?
