Give a child a home by attending concert event

Your favorite local entertainers are gathering for a great cause this weekend - to give a child a home.

The event, held 7 p.m. Sunday (Nov. 23) at Southeast High School, is called Lifesong for Haiti, which will benefit the adoption of a Haitian child to Wendy Brown James, a local actress. Kelly Woodland, who will be directing the concert, gave me a ring last week with details. Money raised from the event will help James with extra adoption fees through the Haitian government and will also benefit the Rivers of Hope Orphanage in Haiti.

Lifesong for Haiti will feature popular Broadway songs focusing on family, relationships and children sung by area actors that include James, Steve and Diane Dawson, Heather Kopp, Denny Miller, Rick Kerby, Garrett Brown, Tahlia Byers and many others.

Tickets are $10. Southeast High is at 1200 37th Ave. E., Bradenton.

For more information, call 722-1104 or e-mail wendyjames8@yahoo.com
