Life is a Caberet Fundraiser


Apr 27, 2019
06:00 PM until 03:45 PM


On Saturday, April 27th Friends Association for Care & Protection of Children will be hosting their annual “Life is a Cabaret: an Evening of Jazz and Broadway” concert to benefit the families and children at Friends Association located in Chester County at The Abbott’s Barn from 6.00 – 8.00 pm. Doors open at 5.30 pm.

“Those families who either are experiencing homelessness, or have been notified of eviction, are able to turn to Friends Association for family shelter or support in fending off eviction.  We are so appreciative of the musicians who donate their time and the attendees who enjoy the event  because their support assists struggling Chester County families who will benefit from housing stability, and guidance for financial independence,” said Jennifer Lopez, Friends Association Executive Director.

Think of a cabaret as a great meal that’s extravagant, prepared with great care, nutritious and good for the soul. During such a meal, one expects balance and variety–savory and sweet, familiar and perhaps unfamiliar with a variety of textures and flavors. The corollary in cabaret is that you want both familiar and unfamiliar songs, both humorous and serious songs, as well as songs of different tempos and styles.

Performing cabaret classics will be: Catherine Friedman, Joshua Graves and Heidi Starr, vocals; John Braceland, guitar; Rob Sparre, keyboard; Bobby Martin, drums; Frank Gwynn, bass; and Timothy Crawford, pianist. 

Heavy hors d’oeuvres are included in the $75 ticket price.  Reserved tickets are available online at  For further information, including becoming a program advertiser please contact Robin Meixner at

Friends Association promotes the independence of families with children by providing shelter, programs and services that prevent and end homelessness in Chester County.  In 2018, Friends Association saved over 120 families and 270 children from homelessness.
