Admission is free, but there is a suggested donation of $15.00.
The Soulful Sunday Brunch event will feature Singer/Songwriter Eric Harris known as E.R.I.C., well known for his “Extra Rich in Class Dinner Show” at The Above Restaurant in South Orange, NJ every Friday evening. E.R.I.C. will perform songs by Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Stevie Wonder, Luther Vandross plus other songs from that genre. E.R.I.C. is one of today’s most versatile talents in live entertainment and will soon be debuting his very own show on Cable TV Network.
Blanche Garcia, of Travel Channel Reality Series “Hotel Impossible” will be the guest speaker. Blanche has also appeared on HGTV, MTV Cribs, Better Show, Daytime and HouseSmarts. Blanche will engage in an open conversation about creating a passion plan for living and her book “Empowered Design – A Design Plan for Living” will be available to purchase with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Lung Cancer Research.
There will also be a guest appearance by Singer, Crystal Gaynor. Raffle prizes will include a special custom hand-made cutting board by Shaun Killman, HGTV’s All American Handyman.
“At this new fundraising event, our Board and I decided we wanted to share a relaxed, fun, “feel good” atmosphere on a lazy summer Sunday and what better way to do this than to listen to soothing music, eating a hearty brunch, having a drink and enjoying an easy soul-stirring conversation", said Mattern. "We are sincerely honored to have E.R.I.C., Blanche, Crystal and everyone involved and thank them for donating their time, talents and energy. We also give a huge thank you to Jim and Kathy Garland for opening up their home to host this one of a kind event to promote health and wellness at the same time, raising funds for lung cancer awareness. We hope members of the public and our friends and family can enjoy a relaxing Sunday brunch at the same time benefiting a great cause.”
