Annual Choral Concert Benefit Raises $21,475
About 700 people filled the First Baptist Georgetown sanctuary on April 19th, 2018 for the 17th Annual Faith in Action Georgetown Choral Concert. Choirs from nine city churches, two quartets and A Capella Texas, performed with a combined finale of Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus. Singers and concert attendees, along with sponsors, contributed $21,475 to the event, which is the largest fundraiser the agency has. Funds raised will support services for clients of Faith in Action Georgetown, which has seen a significant increase in demand for services.
“As our community grows, so does the demand for services like Faith in Action Georgetown, which is dedicated to helping seniors age in place without giving up their independence,” said Vickie Orcutt, executive director of FIAG. “We see God’s hand at work every day with our drivers and other volunteers. And, we certainly see it when the faith communities come together to ensure that seniors‘ needs are met.”
“We are blessed by the actions we see every day that illustrate faith, hope, and love and especially love for our vulnerable neighbors,” she said.
