Church to host benefit concert for Hurricane Matthew victims in Haiti
OMAHA (FOX42KPTM) —
Omaha is now helping those struggling to recover from Hurricane Matthew.
It's been a month since the storm devastated the poor island nation of Haiti.
Now, members of one church are hoping to raise thousands of dollars to begin rebuilding efforts and they'll be doing it all through music.
There's dozens of ways to raise money for a good cause, but the members of World Mission Society Church of God believe the best way to do it is through music.
Bible Teacher Dominique Austin said, "Everyone really loves the sound of music and it actually brings people together."
It’s something that Austin says is really important now after seeing the damage Hurricane Matthew did in Haiti.
Austin said, "The greatest need for them is to be able to restart civilization, improve and be able to gather all their resources that they lost."
To get the funds for those resources members will be performing a benefit concert.
Abigail Tyson said, "It's going to be amazing. I'm so excited to do that."
Tyson will be singing. She, along with seven other members from Omaha, will be taking the stage in Denver this Sunday. They will be joining dozens of others from across the country.
People from the metro are invited to buy tickets and go along with them.
Tyson said, "It's a long drive, but it's for a good cause."
Church members will provide free transportation for people on Sunday morning at 6 a.m.
If you're interested in attending the concert, there's still time to get tickets. Each ticket will run you $50.
Contact the church at (402) 991-4860 to buy tickets.
