HOUGHTON -- The Omega House 8th Annual "Summertime and the Livin' Is Easy" benefit recital will take place at 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 15, at Saints Peter and Paul Lutheran Church in Houghton.

Community vocalists and instrumentalists will join together for an evening of jazz, light opera, folk, blues and Broadway.

Lara Neves has planned the event again this year. She has lined up many talented local performers, including guitarist Steve Jones, Maple Sugar Folk, Noteworthy, and many other vocal solos, duets, and trios.

A $10 donation at the door is suggested to benefit Omega House -- a peaceful, homelike environment for terminally ill people. Omega House provides end-of-life care that emphasizes compassion, independence, respect and dignity. In cooperation with local hospice programs, Omega House provides residents with exceptional care and attention 24-hours a day, seven days a week.
