April 28, 2014 - PRLog -- NEWBURYPORT, Mass., April 28, 2014 – The Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center announces Girls Rock!, an evening cocktail event with a designer handbag silent auction and exclusive live auction items.  This is a fundraising event in support of the center's Girls Inc. of the Seacoast Area programming that empowers local area girls to become strong, smart and bold! The event will take place on Friday, May 9th at Blue Ocean Music Hall, 4 Oceanfront North, Salisbury, MA from 7:00 – 11:00 p.m.  The presenting sponsor of Girls Rock! is Arthur S. Page Insurance Agency.

The evening features a live musical performance by rock and folk legend Patty Larkin.  Patty Larkin redefines the boundaries of folk-urban pop music with her inventive guitar wizardry and uncompromising vocals and lyrics. Larkin's new release Still Green, her 13th recording, is co-produced with Mike Denneen (Aimee Mann, Howie Day). Still Green plays out in Technicolor sound images, a kaleidoscope of sun and sea traveling from the fluorescent-lit hallways of grief to the warm pull of love, family and nature. Much of it written in a primitive dune shack on the Outer Banks of Cape Cod’s National Seashore, Still Green is a fresh approach to sound and life from a legendary songwriter who continues to amaze.

Girls Rock! promises to be a fun and energetic evening showcasing the musical stylings of Patty Larkin, a fabulous designer premier designer handbag silent auction featuring the designs of Michael Kors, Coach and Kate Spade to name a few, and an exclusive live auction, fabulous food, cocktails and fun.   Most importantly, this is the single annual event dedicated to raising funds for our Girls Inc. of the Seacoast Area programming which provides programs to girls in 10 communities within Essex County and encourages them to embrace their value and potential, while equipping them with the tools for leadership roles in the greater community,” says Suzanne Dubus, CEO of the Jeanne Geiger Crisis Center.
