Festival of Hope Concert to Benefit Wheelchair Ramp Program
Last Update: 12:34 pm

From the Broome County Council of Churches:

The second annual "Festival of Hope" concert on May 16th featuring congregational choruses and sponsored by the Broome County Council of Churches will benefit the Council's wheelchair ramp program.

The concert is open to the public and is scheduled for 2:00pm on Sunday, May 16th, at the Conklin Presbyterian Church at 1175 Conklin Road and is expected to feature 10 choruses. For its finale, the choruses will join together and sing the Messiah. No admission will be charged, but there will be a free-will offering with those proceeds used to offset construction material costs of the Council's free "Ramp it Up 2010" wheelchair program. The ramps for thsoe in need will be constructed on summer weekends.

People who have applied for ramps this year are encouraged to attend the concert, as are those who received ramps in 2009. Congreational choruses interested in performing at the concert are asked to call Judy Mica Guerin at the Council of Churches at 724-9130 between the hours of 8:30am and 4:40pm, Monday through Friday, or email at
