Gaither Homecoming Soloist to Sing at Mrs. Edison's Hymn Sing
By: First Presbyterian Church of Fort Myers
Celebrate the Edison Festival of Light and help feed the hungry by attending Mrs. Edison's Hymn Sing Tuesday, Feb. 11, at The First Presbyterian Church in downtown Fort Myers at the corner of Second Street and Lee Street.
Because of the overwhelming popularity of the event, three performances are planned at 1 p.m., 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. The doors will open 30 minutes prior to each performance.
Admission is free, but because of the increased need for food for the hungry, organizers are requesting that those who attend bring cans of non-perishable food and a voluntary cash donation, if possible, to benefit The Soup Kitchen of Community Cooperative.
Ford is a featured soloist on the Gaither Homecoming DVD series, which consistently ranks in the top of Billboard Magazine's music charts. The tenor was awarded a Grammy for Best Southern Gospel Recording in 2003.
Community Cooperative provides 15,000 meals each month through its Community Cafes and Meals on Wheels programs, distributes more than 500,000 pounds of groceries through its Mobile Food Pantries, and serves 6,500 individuals and their families with homeless and comprehensive case management services through its Social & Education Resource Centers. A proud United Way partner, Community Cooperative serves Fort Myers and the greater Lee County area, including Bonita Springs, Cape Coral, Lehigh Acres and Fort Myers Beach.
The church has been a strong supporter of the agency from the beginning and continues to support its ministry there by providing volunteers and other support for The Soup Kitchen and the Meals on Wheels program.
This year's event will feature the First Presbyterian Sanctuary Choir and many other singers, including members of the Mastersingers, Guest Soloists, along with a Piano-Organ Combination.
In addition to Mrs. Edison's Hymn Sing, the Galloway Family of Dealerships also sponsors the very popular Christmas Carol Sing in December. Both events benefit The Soup Kitchen of Community Cooperative.
