Songs of Hope and Struggle...

'
I am pretty well versed in the fundraising arena and very little captivates or surprises me about common community benefit events these days, but Songs of Hope and Struggle was about as inspiring as a fundraiser can get! Prevail (formerly Walk-In Ministry) provides assistance to families in times of crisis. The find solutions for immediate basic needs that often help sustain the future of Prevail clients. Their benefit, featuring songs of hope and struggle sung by the talented Ella Gill and accompanied by the gifted violinist, Scott Daniel, captured the spirit of their mission perfectly.  Jake Shadrake even made a surprise appearance when he sang back-up vocals on several songs.  My guests ranged in age from 13-80 and each of us had a marvelous time!  FitzGerald's was packed and the standing room only crowd noshed on boxed dinners and soft pretzels while these high school aged entertainers made some seriously beautiful music.  It was an enchanting evening to say the least!
