Jacob Yates, the School for Creative and Performing Arts-Lafayette High School Student student who staged a benefit for Haitian Earthquake relief in February featuring the Central Kentucky Youth Orchestra, Ben Sollee and Cynthia Lawrence, is putting together another philanthropic performance. This time, the beneficiary is  the Governor’s School for the Arts, held each summer at Transylvania University.

On the event’s Facebook page, Yates says students at the 2010 Governor’s School were inspired and wanted to give back.

This time around, the performance from 2 to 5 p.m. Dec. 4 at Lexington Catholic High School will feature students from the Governor’s School and “some surprise guests” performing in a “Coffee House” format.

Adult tickets are $10 and student tickets are $5. The Kentucky Center for the Arts, which presents the Governor’s Awards, will match all the proceeds from the event, doubling what it takes in. Check out the Facebook page for ticket information.
