Concert fundraiser successful

Posted by | March 13, 2015 | Mission Work | No Comments
The Spring Concert put on by the Jamaica Outreach Program on March 2, 2015 was a smashing success. Patrons left the venue with glowing remarks: “Fantastic … like being on Broadway!” and “Incredible feast for the ears.”

Performers included the very popular Southwest Florida talent of Billy Dean and Dawn. They were joined by our favorite Jamaican tenor Kevin Williams who not only performed several spiritual hymns but charmed the audience with beautiful ballads including “Perhaps Love” and “Unchained Melody.” Also featured was Dino Vallee, a well-known supporter of the arts and popular opera personality in Southwest Florida and Detroit. His renditions of “Old Man River” and “Largo” from The Barber of Seville were superb.

Chairperson Roger Plante welcomed the audience of nearly 300 and gave a brief synopsis of J.O.P.’s work in Kingston, Jamaica. Funds raised from this wonderful event will support the annual food drive for Jamaica as well as the dental, optical, and medical clinics on the compound of St. Pius X.
