BEACH MUSIC with the EMBERS & MISS VIRGINIA
This fun event is a scholarship fundraiser for the Margaret R. Baker Charitable Foundation, Inc.; a 501(c3) nonprofit organization that awards cash scholarships to young women and men in Virginia. Since its inception in 1997, it has awarded more than $135,000 to Miss Virginia candidates and young men studying healthcare or law enforcement at Roanoke-area colleges.
The Embers boast numerous albums and single releases that span decades and all the crazes continuing to exhibit top quality showmanship, musicianship and professionalism. Having been inducted into the South Carolina Rhythm and Blues Hall of Fame and most recently the South Carolina Beach Music Hall of Fame, The Embers are honored to carry the moniker of North Carolina’s Official Ambassadors of Music. They have traveled the country and the world and has performed for every event imaginable from the highest dignitaries to the hottest back yard frat parties. The Embers were also honored to travel throughout South Korea to perform their Christmas special ‘Christmas with the Embers’ on American Military bases for America’s troops in December of 2007 and 2008. They were awarded Military Coins of Excellence for their distinguished service.
Miss Virginia 2018, Emili McPhail, a recent graduate of Roanoke’s Hollins University, grew up in North Carolina and LOVES the Embers! She can’t wait to attend this event right before she leaves for the Miss America Pageant in Atlantic City, NJ (Sept. 5-7 preliminary competitions; final televised competition: Sun., Sept. 9, 9 PM, ABC-TV).
