Voices for Harvey – Voices of Light Benefit Concert
Monday, September 11th 7:00-9:00 PM at the Leavitt Center
Hurricane Harvey made landfall on the evening of Aug. 25 near Rockport, Texas, a town of less than 10,000 people. Maximum sustained winds in Harvey’s eyewall were 130 mph at that time, making it a Category 4 hurricane. Wind gusts from Harvey near its landfall point topped 100 mph in many locations, leading to widespread destruction of homes and buildings. Harvey’s extreme slow movement Aug. 26-30 kept a fire hose of moisture pointed into southeast Texas and Louisiana for days, resulting in catastrophic flooding.
Now that the flood waters have receded and the damage has been done, the people of Texas and Louisiana are returning home. Some of them will find that they need to rebuild and repair homes, businesses, places of worship, and other structures; and some will find that all that they left behind has been washed away or destroyed.
The Leavitt Center is honored to have the Voices of Light Choir host a benefit concert for the victims of Hurricane Harvey. The concert is free to the public, and we will be accepting donations in the form of cash, check, canned goods, and purchases of concessions. 100% of money raised will be donated to help the people affected by this storm rebuild, restart, and find hope. Please join us Monday, Sept 11 at the Leavitt Center at 7:00 pm.
