PEORIA (WEEK) — A popular annual fundraiser in Peoria was called off last year due to the pandemic, but this year, it is in full swing.
Midwest Food Bank of Peoria is hosting a Southern gospel benefit concert at Northwoods Community Church on May 27th.
The event will feature gospel group The Collingsworth Family, who are set to kick off their summer tour.
Executive director Monica Scheuer says they’ve held concert fundraisers for nearly a decade, and tickets for this year’s event are selling quickly.
“This is a fun time for our supporters. Supporters who come and just want to hear great music and be together,” Scheuer said. “That is so important for the socialization of our supporters. We are super excited to be having it this year.”
Scheuer says anyone interested in attending will need to purchase tickets in advance.
