HOPE: A Benefit for Bethlehem House
"We are expecting a tremendous turn-out for performances by four local bands and several acoustic artists at the Second Annual Hope Concert," says Jill Imboden, Development Coordinator for Bethlehem House homeless shelter.
The musicians will perform on two stages; one is set up for bands and the other for acoustic performances.
We’ll have a great variety of music, something for everyone. One admission price gets you into any or all of the acts you want to see. The music starts at 6 pm on Saturday, September 29. You can learn more about the bands by going to www.facebook.com/pages/Hope-A-Benefit-For-Bethlehem-House.
The Second Annual Hope Concert is being put on in a large part, thanks to our presenting sponsor Trinity Development Company. Event Sponsors for the concert are Sonic Drive-In, Conway Downtown Partnership, Preston Palmer Studios and Revel Magazine. Crain Automotive is sponsoring our acoustic stage. Smith Ford and Summit Bank have sponsored tables for the concert.
Tables are still available for sponsorship for $150. This sponsorship includes eight tickets for the concert and a reserved table with your company name displayed.
All the bands are donating their performances.
Besides hearing some great bands, music lovers will actually be helping build a new building for Bethlehem House. Out of the original $1.3 million building goal, we still need $47,600 to replace our 100 year old money-pit building. Each ticket sold gets us closer. Every dollar raised at the Hope Concert will be matched twice. That means every $10 ticket amounts to $30 for building the new homeless shelter.
Tickets are now available for the Saturday, September 29 performance. Show starts at 6 pm at “The Brick Room”, located at 1020 Front Street in the old Ford dealership building. To get your ticket, in advance, buy on-line at www.bethlehemhouse.net. Select the “Donate Now” button – be sure to indicate “Hope Concert” in the notes section. All ticket sales go to Bethlehem House to build the new shelter.
