We are pleased to announce the first annual HousingFest, a benefit concert to end homelessness in Charlotte.
On February 22, 2014, the Urban Ministry Center welcomes Grammy award winning gospel group, The Blind Boys of Alabama to the Neighborhood Theater along with renowned singer/songwriter and Grammy award winner, Jim Lauderdale for an event not to be missed!
HousingFest is a fundraiser presented by the Urban Ministry Center to increase supportive housing for our neighbors and to raise awareness and money for UMC’s HousingWorks program. HousingWorks seeks to fulfill its mission of ending homelessness by giving the most vulnerable individuals a home. The HousingWorks approach is simple: give chronically homeless individuals what they need most – a safe, stable, affordable home – and then provide the wrap-around support to help them remain housed and regain lives of wellness and dignity.
HousingFest tickets are $25 each and can be purchased from the Neighborhood Theatre. For more information about these legendary talents, visit www.blindboys.com and www.jimlauderdale.com or have a listen here and here.
For information on sponsorship and donations, contact Robert Nesbit at (704) 807-2058.
We hope you will join us for an unforgettable evening to support this incredible cause!
