Everyone had a great time and requested her again for this year,” said Debra Martinez, marketing director for Watters Creek at Montgomery Farm. “We’re also very happy to welcome The Heard Museum as our ‘Music Makes a Difference’ beneficiary. I want to encourage everyone to come out, learn about their wonderful programs, and enjoy the live music on the Green.”
