Saturday’s Haiti Relief Concert starring co-host Point of Grace and Mark Schultz raised over $50,000 to aid the earthquake survivors. That amount does not include on-line giving made available during the live webcasts. Over 3,300 tickets were claimed at the event which took place at Brentwood United Methodist Church while others from 10 countries around the world watched via webcast.
“Oh my goodness!!! That is amazing! Praise the Lord. What a blessing. It paid off for sure,” exclaimed Point of Grace member Denise Jones when told of the money donated to the cause.
“The success in the dollar amount raised on Saturday is only exceeded by the volunteer spirit in which it was given. From all the artists, band members, crew, BUMC staff, UMCOR staff, Word Records and the stream of volunteers that gave their time and talents to help others so desperately in need. From that perspective it was an awe-inspiring evening,” stated Stuart Dill, Point of Grace’s manager and co-event organizer.
Joining the co-hosts for a night of uplifting music were Larry Stewart (Restless Heart), Dove award winners Selah and Ginny Owens.
100% of the proceeds from the night’s concert will benefit the relief efforts of UMCOR.
