Show the Love at Coastal Virginia Unitarian Universalists (CVUU), Virginia Beach, VA
NorFolk Emergency Shelter Team Benefit Concert
Action Date(s): November 6, 2016 - 4:00 pm to 6:09 pm EST
Benefit concert at the Unitarian Church of Norfolk to raise money for the NEST program, first created by our congregation but now run by a broad coalition of groups. We celebrate our ability to work together with other area churches, synagogues and groups in providing warm shelter for our community's homeless.
Here was the concert announcement:
This year’s concert presents a Reed Quintet and Vocalist performing works from the great American Songbook. There will also be a Virginia premiere of NYC Composer Brian Duford’s Reed Quintet entitled “Four Personalities”. The musicians are from the United States Army Training and Doctrine Command Band at Fort Eustis, Virginia. All proceeds will support the NEST program.
Admission is a voluntary donation, please be generous. It costs NEST about $25,000 per year, to provide transportation, blankets and sleeping mats for the 100 people we will be sheltering each night from November 23 through March. NEST has no official funding source, but operates totally on volunteer help and the generous donations of its supporters.
