Cars And Coffee Gastonia Christmas Wishes Show
This Cars and Coffee Gastonia meet will be our Christmas Wishes event to help the Christmas Wishes program at United Way! Please bring an unwrapped gift to donate and enter the event. Our focus is Blankets and Books. Many of the donations we and others
have made in the past are children's toys, and these will still be accepted. There is a huge need for literacy in Gaston Co, so this year we are asking for Blankets and Books. These items will be issued to both children and the elderly, so keep this in mind when making your purchases. One great source for children's and adult books as well as blankets is Ollies at Akers Center.
Lets band together, help our CnCG partner United Way, and make someone's Christmas a Very Special One!

Arsena BACK AT Olio's - Solo Set!
Join Olio's as they present Arsena for a live solo set Friday, December 22 at 7pm for a FREE show.
Show starts promptly at 7pm with a 7:50pm intermission. Second set begins at 8:05pm ending at 9pm. Food and drinks available for purchase.
A little bit about Arsena:
Breedlove Guitars endorsed, Arsena Schroeder is an American soul artist with pop, gospel, and folk influences. Based out of Charlotte, NC, this multi-talented singer-songwriter is known for her acoustic-driven tunes.
Having released her debut album "For My Artist Child, Schroeder has accomplished much in her nearly five years touring as an independent recording artist. This list includes but is not limited to performing for NYC's Rockwood Music Hall, joining the Breedlove Guitars Artist Roster, becoming a NC Arts & Science Council grant recipient, and winning over hearts with a standing ovation from Michael Jordan at The Time Warner Cable (now known as Spectrum) Arena.
In her latest release, QUEST (2017), Schroeder explored a new sound with beats produced by Dylan Graham, co-written with songwriting veteran Tera Jackson. It showcases Schroeder's collaborative and songwriting abilities with songs like "Open Your Eyes" and "Didn't We". The Next Gig Europe says, "Although the new sound took some getting used to, what is the same are the strong vocals of Schroeder and beautiful quiet compositions. The star of Arsena Schroeder is rising in the United States". Arsena recently released her new EP Quest with tour dates in the Czech Republic.
