Citizens Who Care presents its 20th annual benefit concert, “ ‘s Wonderful: The Great Lyrics of Ira Gershwin,” Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 18-19, at the Veterans’ Memorial Theater, 203 E. 14th St. Performances are at 7 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday.

Ira Gershwin is best known for his work with his brother George — one of the most successful and prolific collaborations in popular music history.

Their many hits include “Fascinating Rhythm,” “The Man I Love,” “Someone To Watch Over Me,” “’S Wonderful,” “How Long Has This Been Going On,” “I’ve Got A Crush On You,” “Embraceable You,” “I Got Rhythm,” “It Ain’t Necessarily So,” “They Can’t Take That Away From Me,” “A Foggy Day,” “Nice Work If You Can Get It” and “Our Love Is Here to Stay.”

After George’s death, Ira worked with Kurt Weill (“The Saga of Jenny” and “My Ship”), Jerome Kern (“Long Ago and Far Away”) and Harold Arlen (“The Man That Got Away”).

Producers Stephen Peithman and Martha Dickman and musical director LuAnn Higgs have selected these and other songs for the 20th anniversary concert, a “bookend” to the first concert, which honored George Gershwin.

They will be joined onstage by performers Joe Alkire, Bob Bowen, Gwyneth Bruch, Lenore Heinson, Lenore Sebastian and Peter Shack, plus percussionist Jim Nakayama.

All proceeds will benefit Citizens Who Care, a nonprofit organization in Yolo County, dedicated to improving the quality of life for the frail elderly and their family caregivers through social support programs. Joanne Bell is the executive director.

All seats are $30. For tickets and information, call (530) 758-3704 or visit www.citizenswhocare.us. Tickets also are available at the Citizens Who Care office, 1017 Main St. in Woodland (the United Way Building).

Citizens Who Care offers three kinds of social support programs and services:

* The In-Home Respite Visiting Program provides family caregivers of older adults with a weekly break from caregiving. “We provide companionship and social support to both the older adult and the caregiver,” a news release said. “Our respite volunteers are trained and supported by CWC’s professional staff.”

* The Convalescent Hospital Visiting Program provides companionship and mental stimulation to socially isolated elderly residents. Volunteers of all ages are matched with residents.

Some visiting volunteers bring their friendly, well-behaved pets to lift the spirits of residents, the news release said. The director of volunteers trains each convalescent hospital volunteer.

* The Time Off for Caregivers Program offers site-based social respite (time off) activities at the Davis Senior Center on two Saturdays each month, giving caregivers a five-hour break each program day.

The program includes a healthy lunch and a variety of stimulating activities. CWC’s professional staff provides periodic individual assessments of the participants.
