SAGINAW — This Friday, February 8, the band JAM (Jesus and Music) will host a free concert to benefit Toni and Trish House, a home for the terminally-ill in Auburn, Mich., primarily staffed by volunteers. The band consists of professional and semi-professional musicians and singers who are all members of St. John Vianney Parish in Saginaw Township. The concert will feature the unique combination of electric guitar, drums, inspirational thoughts/prayers, and a church choir. Music will be preformed from artists such as Tom Booth, Michael W. Smith, Casting Crowns, Third Day and more.
More than 500 people attended the event in 2012 and donations were double what they were in 2011. Video clips from previous concerts are available using the following links:
There is no fee to attend, but a free-will offering will be accepted to benefit the Toni and Trish House. The concert is a family event and there will be a cookie and punch reception following.
Toni and Trish House is a home for the terminally ill. It offers shelter, meals, and personal care, as well as round the clock emotional and spiritual bereavement support for the guest and their family.
It was started by two families who independently started funds in hopes of someday creating a home for the terminally ill and who eventually pooled their efforts together. Toni and Trish House relies on charitable donations and its local supporters include the Catholic Diocese of Saginaw, Dow Chemical Company and others.
