The new Salvation Army Corps Community Center in Montclair will hold its annual Christmas Benefit Concert on Friday, December 17, 2010 at The Salvation Army auditorium. Tickets for the 7:30 pm concert are $10 per person.
The Salvation Army Montclair Citadel Band will be joined by world renowned jazz bassist, Christian McBride, world famous jazz singer Melissa Walker and a group from Montclair youth music program, Jazz House Kids. The concert will provide an evening of festive seasonal music.
Proceeds from the event will support the wide variety of services provided year round by The Salvation Army Montclair Citadel that include emergency shelter for homeless individuals and families at Cornerstone House, a hot lunch program each Monday through Wednesday at noon, character building programs and athletic activities for children and adults, summer camping programs and disaster relief services. Last year, The Salvation Army in Montclair spent more than $700,000 to provide direct social service programs to the economically disadvantaged in North Essex County last year. That total is nearly double the amount from the previous year.
Come for a night of great music and support the programs of The Salvation Army at the same time.
