Home Savings to give ceremonial check to amphitheater Saturday
YOUNGSTOWN — Home Savings Bank will present a ceremonial $500,000 check to the Youngstown Foundation Amphitheatre before Saturday evening’s Wine and Jazz Festival concert.
The check will cement Home Savings’ commitment as a founding partner of the $8 million amphitheater, which opened last month.
Home Savings has underwritten a community events series at the new facility that offers discounted or free events.
Saturday’s Wine and Jazz Festival, featuring jazz guitarist Norman Brown, will begin at 7 p.m. The check ceremony will take place on the amphitheater stage at 6:50 p.m. Taking part in the ceremony will be Gary Small, president and CEO of Home Savings; Eric Ryan, president of JAC Management and JAC Live; Councilman Julius Oliver, D-1st; and Derrick McDowell, community engagement coordinator.
After the ceremony, T-shirts will be launched at the audience by the Austintown Fitch High School robotics team.
