Press release:

On Oct. 15, St. Joseph’s School will hosting the 52nd Annual Popcorn Ball. This year’s event will feature dinner from D & R Depot of Le Roy.

Cocktail hour starts at 6 p.m. with dinner being served at 7 p.m. Dinner will include sliced turkey, beef burgundy tips, a mashed potato bar, pasta and other great sides.

Entertainment will be provided by the Rochester-based party band, Up 2 Somethin’, featuring local bass player Rickey Ellis. The group will perform from 8 p.m. to midnight playing old-school hits like "Mustang Sally" (The Commitments) and "Ladies Night" (Kool & the Gang) to Top 40 hits like "I Gotta Feeling" (Black Eyed Peas), "Break Even" (Script) and "Forget You" (Cee Lo Green).

Many of you know Rickey from the days of working at Pontillo’s making pizzas and whatever else Sam and Betty asked him to do. Others will remember him from Duke Jupiter and most recently from Me & the Boyz. Rickey has had a great following throughout the years and we are hoping that this local connection will bring some of you out.

Come have a night out with your friends, good food, and great entertainment!

Tickets for this year’s event are $35 per person and can be purchased by calling St. Joseph’s School at 343-6154.
