Roof Over Head Collaborative Inc. is scheduled Friday to hold its third annual fund-raising event, The PortBury Follies: Entertainment by the Community for the Community Variety Show, at the Firehouse Center for the Performing Arts, 1 Market Square. The multimedia benefit begins at 6 p.m. with a reception, followed by the show at 7. Candidates running for local office and members of the business community will present a lesser-seen side of their public selves by singing, dancing, acting, or performing on stage. The event promises to be a good time, while raising awareness and funds for the growing issue of family homelessness in the area. Tickets for the follies are $25 per person and include refreshments at the reception. Tickets may be purchased from the Firehouse Center by visiting, calling 978-462-7336, or stopping by the Market Square box office in downtown Newburyport. The Roof Over Head Collaborative is a nonprofit organization that provides housing to local families in transition in Newburyport, Amesbury, and Salisbury. It currently hosts three area families, helping them with housing and social services support through a partner organization to help them to financial self-sufficiency. Visit or e-mail
