Reader Input: Concert helps local needy

-A +A

Many thanks to the musicians and audience of the Music for Humanity concert on Feb. 17. Because of their generous sharing of talent, time and treasure, a total of $2,626 is being donated to the Auburn Interfaith Food Closet and Foothills Habitat for Humanity.
The Pioneer United Methodist Church had a full house of appreciative listeners hearing wonderful musicians share their best music. Many of the musicians have participated several times throughout the 24 years of concerts.
Special thanks to the leaders, Janine Dexter of Colla Voce; George Preston of Toot Sweet Brass Company; Julia Riley of Raspberry Jam Band Trio; Gail Begin of the Begin Family; Tom Brier, pianist; Pioneer’s Chancel Choir, Sue Dings, director; and Charlie Gehlbach of Dr. Bach and the Jazz Practitioners.
Thanks also to Frank Sweeney who gave the audience an update of the vital services of the Auburn Interfaith Food Closet and Tertia Hawkins, executive director of Foothills Habitat for Humanity who reported on Habitat’s services and recent challenges.
Our community is fortunate to have so many generous people supporting each other at special events like Music for Humanity.
Sue Dings, Auburn
