Cheers, the weekend is here. Kick it off with cider in hand on the beautiful Castle Hill grounds. Our 600 acres are the perfect retreat, so gather your family (yes, we’re kid-friendly!) and friends to join us for live music and a local food truck on the second and fourth Fridays throughout the summer.
New this year: we will be partnering with charitable organizations for each instance of Friday Cheers, and donating 10% of cider sales during the times of the event. Plus, the organization will be on hand with information so you can learn more about the great work they do for our community. Our partner for June 14th is Ishan Gala Foundation.
Friday, June 14th
Firefly Food Truck

Live Music by Beleza Duo with Madeline and Berto Sales
6:00 - 8:00 p.m.
United by musical interests that include samba, funk, soul, blues, bossa, jazz and Spanish flamenco; Humberto Oliveira Sales and Madeline Holly Sales blend the melodic, rhythmic and harmonic riches from North and South America.
Berto, native to Brazil, pursued a formal education in classical guitar. His knowledge of Brazilian rhythms and study of Spanish Flamenco add to the unique finger picking style he uses. Madeline brings with her the strong influence of soul, jazz and blues. She sings in Portuguese, English and Spanish. Her sensual, rich voice, playful interpretations, and strong stage presence make their combination extremely unique.
As a duo, they enrich their performances by including live percussion and vocal loops. With a full band, they get people out of their seats.

About Ishan Gala Foundation
The Ishan Gala Foundation is present in the lives of children fighting cancer and their families to improve their quality of life during and after the treatment. IGF was founded by Ishan’s parents, Mayank and Sejal Gala in September 2008 after the loss of their child to neuroblastoma. Their goal was to bring comfort to families as they battle cancer and support research efforts to create better treatments for pediatric cancer. Visit http://ishangala.org/ to learn more.
