On Monday, Jan. 16, at 6 p.m. in the Lewis-Sebring Dining Commons, Amherst College will host a community dinner benefiting the Amherst Survival Center. Titled “Supper, Story and Song,” the event will feature entertainment by the Da Camera Singers, college a cappella group the Zumbyes, storyteller Onawumi Jean Moss and college senior Ashley McCall, as well as a meal of soup, salad and bread.

Tickets, which cost $20, are available at the Amherst Area Chamber of Commerce, Amherst Books and A.J. Hastings. They may also be purchased on the Amherst College campus at the Alumni Gymnasium, Athletics Office, Keefe Campus Center, Student Activities Office and Office of Public Affairs.

Recently featured on the Mass Appeal television program, “Supper, Story and Song” is an Amherst College Campus Challenge event. That initiative is part of the President Obama’s national Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge (ICSCC) effort aimed at increasing participation in community service and encouraging interfaith engagement in the U.S. For more information on “Supper, Story and Song” or the Campus Challenge, contact Amherst College Director of Religious Life Paul Sorrentino at 413-542-8489 or
