Concert To Benefit Tornado Victims

Concert To Benefit Tornado Victims

Posted:
By Devon Walsh

You have a chance to help local tornado victims tomorrow night, while enjoying great music. There is a block party and concert being held at St. Mary's Church to help people whose homes were damaged by the Christmas day tornado, and who may not have insurance. The concert is being called "Hope Rising." Young local artists, many McGill-Toolen graduates, are going to be playing accoustic guitar music, and families are invited.

The concert came about, after some McGill-Toolen students wanted to find a way to help the tornado victims. Dan Johnson with the Archdiocese of Mobile, is organizing the concert. He says there is no entry fee. Donations are being accepted to help families in need. "The money will be going to some of the families who have been hurt the most, who don't have home insurance, or don't have food or personal hygiene things that they need. As much money as comes in, we are going to select as many families as we can." Fr. Dan Good with St. Mary's Church says many people have good intentions and want to help, and this is a concrete way to do so. He says they are working with Catholic Social Services and the Red Cross to select the families. "Please come out and join us for Hope Rising, at St. Mary's church. It doesn't matter if you are catholic or not, we would really love to have you. We want to help our people, the people of this neighborhood recover."
