The Belmont High School cafeteria will be transformed into a coffeehouse of old – without the cigarette smoke, of course – as the Belmont High School Working to Help the Homeless club will host its first-ever acoustic coffeehouse on Thursday, May 22 at 7 p.m.
The event is open to public with advanced tickets being sold for $5 at Champions Sporting Goods in Belmont Center.. The ticket price includes the cost of ice cream and other treats once inside.
The performances include:
- Rosy Fitzgerald
- Amelia Fox
- Joe Fitzgerald and Sydney Perkins
- Brass Band (Michael El-Hayek, Max Davidowitz, Rowan Wolf, Jasper Wolf, Sami Belkadi, Jack Carbeck, Rafi Wagner)
- Ribz Daddy G and The Jamboree (Ekim Otucu, Max Davidowitz, Eli Workman, Alex Gharibian, Sary Abi-Hassan)
- Emma Taylor
- Charlie Smith
- Aimee Lin
- Aidan Hamell
- Ben Covell
- Amy Wang
- Barry Eom
- Maerose Pepe
Each of these exceptionally talented performers auditioned for the chance to showcase their skills at the coffeehouse and is well worth the $5 entrance fee.
All of the proceeds will benefit Mary’s House, a shelter in Waltham for homeless families. The shelter provides temporary housing for these families and gives them access to help around issues such as parenting, nutrition, budgeting, substance abuse, and vocational and educational goals.
