A benefit concert will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 22, at the Praise Fellowship Cafe in Russell.
Proceeds will be used by the David and Julie Blick family to help build a home for a family in Mazatlan, Mexico.
This gives the public an opportunity to have a home to a family in need this Christmas.
The entourage planning the mission to Mexico
The Blicks of Youngsville will travel with some family and friends to Mazatlan, Mexico, where they will work to build a home for a poor family.
The entourage will include Dave and Julie Blick and their children, Randi, Nate, Josiah and Christian; Ben and Liz Blick and their three small children, Naomi, Judah and Leyna; Cassandra Galbier; and Bryden Bowley.
"We are thrilled to have this amazing opportunity to give such a wonderful and life-changing gift," Julie Blick explained.
The family invites the public to this concert. There will be music performed by Dave, Ben, Liz and Nate, along with desserts and coffee and a cozy festive atmosphere. They will share briefly about their trip, and all proceeds will go to build the house. The family they are building for lives in a tiny shack. The work will be overseen by a contractor. The Blick family and friends will construct a comfortable dry home (and with it a brighter future) for this family. The home will be outfitted with a bed, stove, table, chairs and refrigerator for a total cost of $6,600.
"What an awesome time of year to give a little bit of the lots that we all have to bless a family in need," Blick added. "An entire community is transformed one family at a time."
The public is invited to come and enjoy a cup of coffee, delicious dessert and great music; and help give the gift of a home.
