Wareham Performances to Benefit Damien’s Place Food Pantry

WAREHAM – Performer Chris Coile is donating proceeds from upcoming performances at The Fan Club on Cranberry Highway in Wareham to Damien’s Place Food Pantry in Wareham.

The first show is on Sunday, June 14, and the live music is from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Coile plays and sings classic rock ’n’ roll and country, and is joined by other local entertainers Debbie Bokelkamp and Mark Darling.

Proceeds from CD sales and any other voluntary donations go directly to Damien’s Place Food Pantry in Wareham, according to a press release.

Damien’s helps more than 800 families every week. People in need of Damien’s help come from all over the South Coast.

There is never any cover or minimum at the performances, and any donation is strictly voluntary. Any donation of $5 also gets the donor a free Chris Coile CD.

Coile’s performances will continue every other Sunday until October. The performance dates are June 14 and 28, July 12 and 26, Aug. 9 and 23, and Sept. 6 and 20. Reservations are not necessary, and performances all go from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

“I sing and play the greatest rock ’n’ roll tunes of the ’50 s – ’70s,” Coile said. “I also lived in Montana for 10 years and developed a love for country songs, as well. Both the early rock ’n’ roll and country have great melodies, tell a story, and have a beat that makes you want to get up out of your chair and dance. Come out and join us for an evening. It’s a lot of fun, great music and helps a local food pantry.”
