The Phinney Neighborhood Community Chorus filled Phinney Ridge Lutheran Church on Saturday night for its annual Haiti benefit concert. The chorus raised more than $7,500 in donations for the Mona Foundation, which supports the Georges Marcellus School in Guerot. That doesn’t include donations made to the foundation’s website, which haven’t yet been tallied.

The chorus has raised about $68,000 since its first fundraising concert in 2005, first for Lekol Pa Nou School in Pinchon, and then for Georges Marcellus School for the past three years.
