Sean of the South returns to Nanny’s March 11

Would you love the chance to enjoy good southern food, homegrown talent and a return visit by writer/musician Sean Dietrich to the Camellia City? Then you will not want to miss an event set for March—one that will also serve as a tribute to a beloved family member as well as a fundraiser for a worthy cause.

“Sean on the Porch-Spring Edition” kicks off at noon on Sunday, March 11 on the grounds of Nanny’s Fine Dining. Guests can enjoy a plate lunch featuring Nanny’s famous chicken fingers as they listen to local favorite Steve Norman perform. At 2 p.m., Sean Dietrich, aka ‘Sean of the South,’ will take the porch to sing and to spin his trademark tales laced with humor and heart.

The event is a fundraiser for Safe Harbor, a cause close to the heart of the late Nancy Duncan Blackmon, who passed away three years ago almost to the day of the event.

“We as a family are holding this event in memory of our own dear Nancy,” says Rebecca Duncan of Nanny’s. “We can’t think of a better way to honor Nancy than to raise funds and awareness for the Children’s Advocacy Center, Safe Harbor.”

Safe Harbor director Kathy Smyth declares herself “so excited” about the upcoming event.

“I attended the first ‘Sean on the Porch’ event at Nanny’s this past year and loved that laid-back Sunday afternoon under the trees listening to Sean’s stories and songs while he was up there on Nanny’s wrap-around porch,” says Smyth.

“When Rebecca approached me about having him back, and in memory of Nancy, well–I was both touched and honored to be involved. Nancy had served as a board member for Safe Harbor and she was also a good friend. What a super way to honor her memory.”

Tickets are $20 per person, which includes the meal and all entertainment, and are now available through March 6 at the following outlets: Nanny’s, Safe Harbor, Camellia City Bakery, First Realty, The Roost, and The Pineapple. In addition, Casey Rogers of Pioneer Electric and Kim Beverly at the Butler County Probate Judge’s office have tickets.

“We are strictly pre-selling the tickets for this event and they are limited in number. There will not be any available at the door,” stresses Duncan. “So you will definitely need to pick up your tickets in advance no later than March 6, and we do suggest you get them as soon as possible.”

Attendees are encouraged to bring their lawn chairs to Nanny’s that Sunday and plan to make an entertaining afternoon of it for a great cause.

“Whether you come for the love of Nancy, the love of Safe Harbor or of Steve or Sean, please come. You will not want to miss this event,” Duncan adds.
