Eighth Annual Children’s Benefit Concert

A young performer dances a hulaJoin the children and youth of the Lutheran Church of Honolulu on Saturday, March 2, at 4:00 PM for a concert benefiting the children and families around the world.

The children of the LCH Sunday School began raising money for disadvantaged families around the world in 2005 when they worked with the entire congregation to raise $5,000 to purchase an Ark of Animals from Heifer International. The next year they presented their first benefit concert, which has been an LCH tradition ever since. Each year a concert of song, dance, instrumental performances, orations, and several surprises has been presented to the community. Since 2006, the Children’s Benefit Concerts have raised over $35,000 with the help of the LCH congregation and their entire Honolulu community.

For the past seven years, the benefit concert has been a fundraiser for Heifer International. For 2013, the children will send funds to a new beneficiary, the ELCA’s Good Gifts program, which supports children and families through local, community-based partners in over 60 countries around the world.
