Cottage Event Center to help Boys & Girls Club

Posted: Friday, February 28, 2014

Due to the popularity of last year’s inaugural event, the Boys and Girls Club of Huntington County is bringing back Indianapolis Rock ‘n Roll Cover Band Press the Glass. The event will be held on Friday, March 14 for a fundraiser at the Cottage Event Center in Roanoke.

Press the Glass (which recently changed its name from Tollgate Road) is one of Indy’s most popular groups specializing in music from the 1970s and 80s, including hits from artists like ZZ Top, Journey, John Mellencamp and Aerosmith. The band has played before Colts games at Lucas Oil Stadium and has become a favorite at the new Downtown Indianapolis hot spot Dick’s Last Resort. Known for playing nearly non-stop during their sets, Press the Glass features Mark Bailey on lead guitar and vocals, and Terry Carmony on the Blues Harmonica.

Tickets for the event are $10 and can be obtained at the Boys and Girls Club, Good Grains Gluten Free Bakery in Roanoke or by calling the Cottage Event Center at (260) 483-3508. Tickets also may be purchased using PayPal at the venue’s website Besides being a fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Club, the evening marks second anniversary for the Cottage Event Center. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the band will take the stage at 7:30 p.m. The event is sponsored by Zay Auto Leasing on U.S. 24 in Huntington.

Oley’s Pizza will be on sale by the slice; a cash bar will also be available. The Boys and Girls Club of Huntington County is currently in the middle of a $3.5 million dollar capital campaign to build a new facility at their current East State Street location. The new facility will be known as The Parkview Boys and Girls Club of Huntington County.
