The 18th annual Soul Shine Blues Festival is quickly approaching and is the fundraiser for First Step, an agency dedicated to work with families who have a variety of obstacles, including domestic violence.
The festival will  be Saturday at the Meadowbrook Park Ballroom in Bascom. The gates open at 1 p.m. and blues artists are scheduled to perform beginning at 2 p.m. Music will continue until 8 p.m. Admission is $20, with free admission to children under age 5. Tickets can be purchased at the door.
Classes regarding fatherhood and relationships, emergency shelter, advocacy services and a 24-hour crisis hotline are only a few of the services First Step is able to provide with the generous help of the community. The agency is located in Fostoria.
Headlining the festival are Lonnie Shields and Michael Charles.
Festival participants can also purchase raffle tickets for $20 for a Gibson Les Paul electric guitar, donated by the Guitar Center. More than thirty other raffle items are featured in the Top Hat Raffle and include prizes of a Budweiser electric guitar, gift certificates from many area restaurants, gift certificates for massages, a Pandora bracelet, custom-made corn hole boards, a family session photo shoot, Ohio State memorabilia, artwork from local artists, and more.
