Music & Munchies for Malaria

malaria-2

Come and join the fight against the spread of malaria by listening to some great music and relaxing with some refreshments and good company.

On Saturday, April 20, 2013 at 7:00pm LCR’s choral music groups will put on a concert to benefit the ELCA Malaria campaign. Following the concert refreshments will be served in the Fellowship Hall. A free will offering will be taken and all proceeds will go the ELCA Malaria initiative.

The goal of the ELCA Malaria Campaign is to stop the spread of malaria by 2015. The ELCA is working in partnership with African churches and relief organizations to provide medication, education and treated mosquito nets to people in affected areas. The Music and Munchies for Malaria concert is the second event hosted by Resurrection members in support of this campaign. In March the 8th grade Confirmation class hosted a Lenten pancake supper and raised over $500.
