The Prairie Renaissance Cultureal Alliance Annual Fundraiser, Heart of the Arts, will be held from 6:30 to 10 p.m. Saturday at Old No. 1 (412 South Atlantic Avenue) in Morris. There will be a live art auction with Kevin Manney, a deluxe homemade dessert buffet, and PRCA Board Member Rhoda Smith told the KMRS Community Connection about a new event they are introducing at this year’s fundraiser.

“This  year we have the Battle of the Bands. And so, we really have expanded the arts into local music,” said Smith. “We’re very excited about that. We’ve got a lot of great local groups coming. So, starting at 7:00 Saturday night we’re going to be featuring our local music groups as well.”

Musicians featured include Alex McIntosh, Morris Kiwanis Quartet, FlattGrass Revival and a jazz combo from the University of Minnesota Morris, with a special performance by Josh Fischer. Cost is $15 adults or 2 for $25, college and high school students $5, and free for elementary age and under. Tickets may be purchased at Prairie Art and Gifts or at the door.
