At Wingate University, the Sheriff’s Office will sponsor a New Year’s Eve Gospel Sing, featuring Deeper Shade of Blue, the Wishons, Valor III, The Cockman Family and Bridge. The event, which is free, will be held at the Batte Center on campus, 220 N. Camden Street.
On the other side of the county, Skinnyz’ Bar in Stallings will host a party with live music from Union County band Craving Jane. There will be a free champagne toast, with a party favor on each table and bar tap. The bar, 15060 Idlewild Road, will provide a designated driver for those who live within a 5 to 10 mile radius.
