Two fundraisers have been scheduled in Ojai Valley for the week ahead, each to benefit a different local project, and each promising to provide a memorable summer occasion.
The first, set for 7 p.m. Monday at Deer Lodge, will raise money for the Ojai Youth Entertainers Studio's (OYES) forthcoming production of Johnathan Larson's popular rock opera, "Rent." On hand for the evening entertainment will be Sam Morris, Bernie Larsen and TD, Maclovia and Jeff Uzzel, providing live music "until late," according to event coordinator Ariel Catlett.
