On Saturday, November 7, Pennies for Poverty presents the third annual Music for Change: An Evening of Good Times and Good Tunes to Benefit our Neighbors in Need at the Elks Lodge in Newburyport.

The event features genre-jumping music of EJ and Crazy Maggy, merging rock, pop, reggae, roadhouse, jazz, Celtic and Appalachian feels. Newburyport’s own Thomas Machine Works and Liz Frame will each do an opening set. Liz will also serve as Master of Ceremonies for the evening.

Starting at 6:30, the evening includes a selection of small plates from local restaurants, a silent auction and cash bar.

Thank you to the Institution for Savings and the Newburyport Five Cents Savings Bank for sponsoring the event. Businesses and neighbors from Newburyport, West Newbury, Newbury, Rowley, Salisbury, and Amesbury have contributed generously to the silent auction and food selection.

All proceeds from this event go directly to address urgent needs and underfunded programs at social service organizations that help those living in poverty in Newburyport and surrounding towns.

Don’t miss this community event!

Tickets ($25 in advance) are available online at MusicforChange.Yapsody.com or at Dyno Records, 1 Middle Street, Newburyport. Tickets will be available at the door for $30.
