Play It Forward to Benefit Scandia Village

On Oct. 26 at 2 pm, some of Door County’s most popular musicians will gather to raise funds for the Scandia Village Partners in Compassion campaign with the second annual “Play It Forward” benefit concert at Door Community Auditorium.

This year’s lineup includes Found The Lost, Julian Hagen, Deathfolk (Jess Holland and Nick Hoover), One Voice (Lynn Gudmundsen, David Hatch, and Lloyd Michalsen), Ben Larsen, poet Ralph Murre, Madisen Lutz, Dirty Deuce, Elliot Goettelman, Small Forest (Jeanne Kuhns, Marybeth Mattson, and Patrick Palmer), Last Man Standing, Larry “Thor” Thoreson, Matt Burress, and Mighty Mouth.

In addition to maintaining loyal local fan bases, many of these artists tour regionally or nationally. Their music ranges from sultry R&B to classic rock to old-timey folk.

Proceeds from this year’s Play It Forward concert will benefit Partners in Compassion, a capital campaign to fund construction and remodeling work at Scandia Village, a large senior living community in Sister Bay. The campaign seeks to meet specific needs of residents and better serve the greater community by adding on to the Scandia Village campus and remodeling existing spaces.

Play it Forward begins at 2 pm on Oct. 26. There is no charge for tickets, but freewill donations to the Partners in Compassion campaign are encouraged. For more information, contact the DCA box office at 3926 Hwy. 42 in Fish Creek. The box office is open Monday to Friday, 12 to 5 pm. For more information call 920.868.2728 or visit
