NEHALEM - "Wired for Sound," a Tillamook County KMUN transmitter benefit, is scheduled for Aug. 16 at the Nehalem Bay Winery.

Area vocalists Cat Freshwater, Maia Holliday and Maggie Kitson plan to perform.

"Cat will sing unaccompanied, while Maia will be backed by Brian Johnstone and Maggie by The Elements - all excellent musicians," said Chuck McLaughlin, Wheeler resident and local KMUN transmitter fund-raising coordinator.

A spaghetti dinner will be served from 5 to 7 p.m., with music to be performed from 7 to 10 p.m. Organizers suggest those who attend donate $10 at the door. While the price of dinner will be included in the donation amount, beer, wine and other beverages will cost extra.

Stephanie Stern, KMUN development director, said those who attend the benefit will be invited to participate in a cake-decorating contest with a KMUN theme. The designer of the cake voted most creative will win a free KMUN membership.

Autographed, hand-painted event posters, done by local artist Don Osborne, will be available in exchange for a suggested donation, noted McLaughlin.

"We're hoping this shindig will raise the final amount needed for the transmitter," said Stern.
