Tsunami Relief Concert at SNU

Students wanted to do something to help victims of the tsunami disaster and came up with a Tsunami Relief Week, including a Relief Concert, Thursday, March 10 at 8:00 pm in Herrick Auditorium on the campus of Southern Nazarene University.

“This student-led event to raise money for tsunami victims allows SNU students a chance to act on our Christian mandate to care for the powerless and disenfranchised,” said Jason Hubbert,
Associate in Spiritual Development for the Student Government Association.

Sponsored by the Student Government Association and the Office of Spiritual Development, the Relief concert will include local artists such as So Long Goodbyes, Tommy Bailey, Tyler Altus, David Ford Johnson, and Brad Walker.

The concert is a part of a week-long relief effort that also included the fasting of a noon meal and donating the money saved, and receiving an offering during a chapel service. All funds raised will be sent to two different organizations. The fast donations will go to Nazarene Compassionate Ministries in Kansas City. Heart-to-Heart, a national relief organization with offices in Kansas City and Oklahoma City, will receive the money from the concert to help buy a water-purification system. The offering will be divided between the two organizations. There are also local companies that are matching a portion of the monies raised by the students.

Tickets for the Relief Concert are $5.00 at the door. For more information contact SGA President Ryan Scott at rscott@mail.snu.edu or Jason Hubbert, SGA Representative at jhubbert@snu.edu, or the Office of Communications and Marketing at 491.6602.
