On Friday (June 27) night, folkpop singer Tyrone Wells, along with openers Brian Jarvis and Joanna Pearl, entertained the crowd at Pala Casino Spa & Resort at a concert that served as a fundraiser for Murrieta’s nonprofit Oak Grove Center for Education Treatment & The Arts.

The event, which also featured the first ever Charity Golf Classics at California Oaks Golf Club in Murrieta, was sponsored by Union Bank of Murrieta, Fallbrook and Oceanside, CA, Black Market Art, T.M. Cobb, Valley Business Journal, Neighbors Newspaper and Pala Casino Spa & Resort.

"We are very grateful for the generosity, leadership and vision that Bob Caruso with Union Bank displayed in making this double header event a reality," said Tammy Wilson, CEO of Oak Grove Center. "We so appreciate the other sponsors and other artists as this will make a big impact for our arts program."

Local singer/songwriter Joanna Pearl, who opened up the evening on stage said, "Whether I'm supporting a charity like Oak Grove or promoting businesses that showcase the talents of independent, strong women, it's important to me as a person to feel like I am making a difference."

Joanna, who took the lead on being one of the entertainment liasons for herself and the other artists also said the two weeks leading up to the event were full of hard work and surprises, "The meetings for rehearsals, writing press releases, updating social medias, corresponding via phone and emails to work out the logistics for the final product was well worth it, I was just doing what I love for a great cause and that is so cool."

At the end of the night, raffle tickets were drawn for winners who took home gift baskets and autographed sports memorabilia.

Proceeds from the golf and concert events will benefit the Oak Grove Center for Education Treatment & The Arts, a nonprofit, 24 hour residential, educational and therapeutic treatment center, located in Murrieta, that treats 76 atrisk children who live on campus and 90100 day students who attend its nonpublic schools.
