Description: The Performing Arts Society at Western Illinois University will once again bring its Diamonds and Denim event to The Forum in Macomb on Friday, Aug. 9.

The seventh annual event will run from 6:30 to 10:00 PM and will again include a raffle for a one-carat diamond in a solitaire setting. Each year the diamond is donated by Sue Melton, owner of Macomb's Diamond Den.

The stone's retail value is $4,000 and the winner is responsible for any applicable taxes. Tickets for the raffle are $5 each, three for $10 or 10 for $20.

The entertainment for this year's event is JammSammich, a Peoria-based cover band whose fanbase called SammichHeads is huge. JammSammich plays tunes from 4 decades, including Motown, disco, funk, hip-hop, retro 80's, Buffett, and rock. Sammich is the TRUE variety band--there REALLY is something for everyone. Check them out on Facebook.
