Pianist Seering presents Sinatra and Diamond

 Hair went on to say that our area snowbirds historically have purchased 50 percent of tickets sold.

"Snowbirds love this type of music, and they also like to contribute and support the community, which they can do when they purchase a ticket to this concert," said Seering.

Tickets are $20 at the door and all proceeds benefit CIC. Seering's time is donated.

Last year's concert netted $10,000 for the non-profit organization.

CIC Children's Neighborhood offers a stable home environment to children who don't have a home, and abused and neglected children who are coming from difficult situations, said Hair. They come to CIC through Florida Department of Children and Families' Family First Network.

Hair said the money his organization receives from charitable events such as these "helps us keep our doors open and sustain operations. The money helps us feed and clothe the children."

On any given day, CIC is home to 30 children and averages around 100 per year. In its four years of operation, the organization has housed a total of 350 children.
