Greater Richmond Chorus Show Raises Money for The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club
In honor of The Salvation Army's 125th Anniversary and its service to Central Virginia, the Greater Richmond Chorus, an award-winning a cappella show chorus, recently performed a benefit show, "A Gift of Music."
This show was held at St. Michael's Catholic Church in Glen Allen and all proceeds from the show were donated to The Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club.
The show raised close to $3,000 and featured the acclaimed singing and dancing of the Chorus, under the direction of Master Director, Roger Tarpy.
Special thanks to Kat Simons, Lite 98 radio personality, for emceeing this wonderful event.
"Our nonprofit Chorus is pleased to donate proceeds from the show to the Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club," said Chorus member, Jean Roberts.
"Making a donation to this fine organization jives well with the Chorus' mission to provide education concerning a cappella harmony as well as to serve the community by providing quality entertainment."
The Greater Richmond Chorus, a 70-voice women's a cappella show chorus, is a 5-time Sweet Adelines Regional Champion and International Semifinalist.
Their most recent appearance on the International stage was in Honolulu, and they are currently preparing to compete in Seattle next October after winning their 3rd consecutive 4-State Regional Championship.
The Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club, in Richmond's Church Hill neighborhood, provides warm meals, recreation and after school and summer programming with a focus on character/leadership skills, education/career development, health/life skills, arts, and morality/values enhancement to more than 500 youth every year.
