It would be wonderful to wake up on Mothers Day with the memory of a great evenings musical entertainment still echoing in your head.
Greyhounds Entertainment is setting the scene for just such an occasion at Sandown Park, View Road, Springvale. On Saturday 12 May, the eve of Mothers Day, this bar and dining venue will host a live concert from 7pm to 11.30pm.
Over four and a half hours, guests will be entertained by the Majestic Band and a number of other local Vietnamese musicians. They include guitarist Trung Hieu, singer Ngoc Mai, Hoang Hiep, Xuan Hung and Cam Quynh.
The concert is free for everyone, and does not require bookings. It will be held in the open air, under cover, with heaters set up to keep the warm and deck chairs for those who want to sit.
Greyhounds Entertainment is a nonprofit organisation, in operation since 1994 to raise funds for the community in the Greater Dandenong area. In February it hosted the Lunar New Festival at the same site.
An organiser told Modern Asian that, in the past, Greyhounds has always hosted events by third party organisers. This is the first time Greyhounds is hosting its own event.
For those who want a meal before the concert, there are two dining venues at the site. Dawson's Bistro is open for dinner from 5.30pm, or you could try the Trackside Noodle Bar, open from 11.30am.
Attending this event will not only give your mother a great night out, it will show support for an organisation devoted to its community.
