Concert events are held from 5:30-8:30 on Thursday evenings in the Westchester Concert Field, on Main Street at Westchester Commons. (see Below Event). On the day of the Concert, you can help us raise funds for this event.
he Westchester Concert Series will once again host a series of performances that will benefit local charitable organizations. The final concert of the year on Thursday September 29, 2022 will benefit the Chesterfield Historical Society. The KOS Band will be the performer for our concert. The concert series is bringing in bigger acts this year and is expecting large crowds. We are in need of volunteers to work the event. I am contacting those who have volunteered before to see if you are available this year. We will begin to meet to work out the details for this event in the coming weeks.
Volunteers will be responsible for checking identification, distributing wrist bands, selling tickets for beer and wine, serving/pouring beer from the taps at the beer tent and monitoring two entrances at the venue. Volunteers are needed from 4:30 until 9. We need a minimum of 20 people to handle the work load at this event. Volunteers do not have to be Historical Society members so if friends or family want to participate they are welcome. If you are interested in volunteering please reply to Scott Williams at Williamss@chesterfield.gov or call 804-641-0634.
We have also received a grant from Modern Woodmen Fraternal Financial on behalf of the Historical Society that will match what we raise up to $2,500. This is our biggest fundraising opportunity of the year so please help if you can.
