The Port Boca Grande Lighthouse has been appropriately decorated and festooned for the season (thank you to the B shift from the Boca Grande Fire Department), and the official lighting will take place on Saturday, Dec. 12, beginning at 6 p.m.
The actual lighting will take place at 6:15 p.m.
This will also be a celebration of the Lighthouse’s 125th birthday, so it is an extra-special night.
The vocal stylings of Verceal Whittiaker will fill the night as the crowd enjoys complimentary refreshments (including wine).
Verceal started her career in Chesapeake, Virginia as a member of the Dawson Singers. She sang with several recording artists before joining The Platters 1992-2000 and traveled extensively throughout the United States and Canada as a member of the show band “Attraction.” She is blessed with a beautiful voice and an extraordinary vocal range. Verceal graced The Platters as its first lady and is described as a true lady both onstage and off. Over the past twelve years, Verceal has shared the stage with the Temptations, Spinners, Drifters, Coasters, Wilson Williams Platters, Gary Pucket, Alan James Powerhouse, Pointers Sisters, Percy Sledge, Supremes, Contours, Dan Toler of the Allman Brothers, Tucci Band and Foreigner. Verceal has performed at the Rainbow Room in NY, The Apollo in Harlem, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Japan, the Philippines, Australia, literally all over the world.
The event is sponsored by the Mosaic Company.
