ELMHURST, IL — A church in Elmhurst this month will host a benefit concert to help the suffering children of South Sudan. Christian music artists Chris August and Kerrie Roberts will perform beginning at 7 p.m. on Friday, August 23 at the Elmhurst Christian Reformed Church, 149 W. Brush Hill Road.
Tickets can be purchased here for the concert organized by the Saul Ebema Foundation, an organization dedicated to helping the children of the South Sudan. VIP tickets are going for $45, with general admission at $25 and general admission groups of 10 or more people going at $20 apiece.
"Because of the war and drought in South Sudan, humanitarian needs have escalated to alarming levels," the foundation said in a statement. "Half of the population- many of them children are facing emergency levels of hunger, and more than a million risk starvation. We could not just sit and do nothing. That is why we have collaborated with contemporary Christian music artists Chris August and Kerrie Roberts to host a benefit concert.
"The goal of this concert is to raise awareness and funds to help the Children in South Sudan who are enduring a deepening crisis of hunger. We therefore invite the community to come to this concert and partner with us!"
