PIQUA — The Edison Foundation will present John Tesh in concert at Edison State Community College as the entertainment for 20th annual Holiday Evening event.

This year’s event will take place, Wednesday, Nov. 29, at the Piqua campus and will support student scholarship opportunities.

A four-time Emmy Award-winner and two-time Grammy nominee, Tesh has maintained a highly successful and varied career path that includes a 10-year run as anchor on “Entertainment Tonight,” a string of No. 1 radio hits and his popular, nationally-syndicated radio show.

Proceeds from the evening will directly benefit the Edison Foundation Scholarship Fund to support Edison State students through scholarship opportunities.

“This is not just a one-night event but rather a community effort to impact lives,” said Jim and Ginny Thompson, cochairmen of the Holiday Evening event. “Thanks to event sponsors and attendees, student scholarships made available through the Edison Foundation will continue to impact lives in our community.”

Presenting sponsors for the event include Edison State Community College, Emerson and Premier Health/Upper Valley Medical Center.
