BROOKLYN AVENUES

COMMUNITY CONCERT FUNDRAISER

With the groundbreaking completed, construction will soon begin on the Brooklyn Avenues Youth Homeless Shelter, just up Broadway from Prince of Peace.  It is the first of its kind in the suburbs and will prevent homeless youth from exploitation and harm.  Prince of Peace is one of the faith communities that initially supported the city's effort to make this a reality.  The Outreach Team of POP initiated the fundraiser and musicians from a variety of churches have been working together to plan the benefit concert.   

Plan to attend an inspired night of music featuring:  

Gospel Singer,  Robert Robinson & a 100 voice community choir

Brooklyn Big Band & Cultural Performance at 

Prince of Peace Church 

Saturday, October 11, 7 pm

 

Everyone Welcome -
Donations Accepted for the Shelter Fellowship and Refreshments
