Hope for Tomorrow concert
The holiday season is my favorite time of the year for so many reasons. Great food, quality time spent with family, festive and nostalgic activities to choose from, and the spread of goodwill as people forget self and turn their attention to the needs of others all represent just some of the reasons why it becomes special for me.
Managing a non-profit agency is hard work, but it is also very rewarding. My job affords me a front row seat to all that is good in our community. For 25 years I’ve witnessed parents who’ve been brought through our doors by their children who collected a few pounds of food, an envelope with a few dollars in change, or a bag of used clothes in tow; a parent who sponsors Christmas for a less fortunate person in honor of a deceased child; a caterer and family who donates their food services on a holiday so our staff can spend time with theirs. My point? – Just an illustration of the goodness in people that I’ve found to be so characteristic within our community.
On Saturday, December 6th, the inaugural HOPE FOR TOMORROW concert will again showcase both the generosity and supreme talent that our community has to offer in a Christmas benefit concert that will support the mission of the Food & Care Coalition. Lyle Hadlock and a host of local top tier talent will share their musical talents that will ignite the holiday spirit within. Hand crafted hope chests donated by local builders will also be available for auction. Hope Chests will be on display at the Food & Care Coalition (299 E. 900 S., Provo)
from mid-November through December 5th and then moved to the NuSkin Innovation Center for the night of the event. Silent auction bids will be taken from November 18th until the end of the concert on December 6th. Winning bids will be notified on December 7th.
