CHOW Benefit Concert - 12/4/2010
The 7th annual Chorus for CHOW Benefit was held at the Sarah Jane Johnson Memorial United Methodist Church Saturday afternoon.
Hundreds filled the pews and listened to holiday music for an excellent cause.
The concert is held annually to raise money for the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse of the Broome County Council of Churches.
CHOW's director says many people are in urgent need of food this holiday season.
"So we're really here to help people who have to face the dilemma, "Do I pay for my heat bill or do I buy food?" And so, we're able to say because of the generosity of this community, "pay your heat bill and we'll give you the food you need," said Ed Blaine, the Director of Chow.
Last year this event raised around $2,000, and the events organizers hope to match that amount this year.
