LAKEPORT, Calif. — The 2022 KXBX 98.3 Lakeport Summer Concert Series wrapped up on Aug. 19 with the ZZ Top tribute band Beer Drinkers and Hellraisers.
Bicoastal Media, the producer of the concert series, presented the Lakeport Rotary with a check for $1,500 to be used for the restoration and repair of the gazebo in Library Park.
Bicoastal Media General Manager Paul Thomas presented the check at the intermission to members of the Lakeport Rotary including President Laura Sammel, District Governor Jennifer Strong and Rotary Area Assistant Governor David Moon-Wainwright.
Also on hand were Lakeport City Council Member Michael Froio and Lakeport Main Street Director Marie Schrader.
“The Lakeport Summer Concert Series has been a part of this community for almost 30 years,” said Thomas. “Every summer, for 10 weeks we gather around the gazebo to spend time with friends and family and to listen to great music. Bicoastal Media would like to give back to the City of Lakeport and help restore and renovate the stage where so many fun memories have been made.”
Thomas said Bicoastal Media wanted to recognize and thank the many local businesses whose continued support helps to continue to provide free family entertainment to the community every summer.
“And, we would like to thank the City of Lakeport for our continued partnership, and the Lakeport Rotary for taking on the Gazebo Restoration Project,” Thomas said.
In addition to organizing and completing the project, the Lakeport Rotary has agreed to match Bicoastal Media’s $1,500 donation.
