Phinney Community Chorus raises nearly $10,000 for Haiti school

June 16th, 2011 · Comments

The Phinney Community Chorus raised $9,675 from about 175 people who attended last Sunday’s concert at Phinney Ridge Lutheran Church. Chorus member Mike Veitenhans tells us that the concert included songs from around the world — France, Italy, Georgia, Croatia, South Africa, Haiti and the United States.

All the money raised will go to pay teacher salaries at Lekol Pa Nou (“Our School”) in Pichon, Haiti, which the chorus has been supporting for several years. If anyone still wants to contribute, they can make a tax deductible donation through Education for Prosperity.
