October 2009: Fall Fundraising Concert Successful

Who is My Neighbor? Inc. raised over $7,000 at its annual fundraiser on October 24th, as the Celtic band Blackwater entertained over 150 supporters of this community nonprofit. The opening singers, a dozen girls from Highland Park High School who form the ensemble Amandala, also charmed the audience with their amazing voices. Thanks, everyone involved in producing the concert and to those who came out and supported this local charitable organization (in spite of torrential rain)!
Save Saturday night, Oct. 24th to attend our benefit concert starring the band Blackwater, playing and singing traditional and modern Celtic music. Opening will be Amandala, the student-run girls’ a cappella phenomenon from Highland Park High School. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 at the door. The concert starts at 7:30 pm in the social hall of the Reformed Church of Highland Park. You can be even more supportive by placing an ad or greeting in the concert’s program book! Call (732) 247-3700 or email to info@whoismyneighbor.net or stop by the office to purchase tickets, place an ad, or supply your time and skills as a volunteer.

Back by popular demand, Blackwater played to a full house in 2006 as part of Who Is My Neighbor’s Global Heart concert series. Rooted in Irish and British traditions, the three men and two women perform songs that range from rollicking and thunderous to winsome and poignant. With traditional and modern instruments they make music that is high-spirited or reflective, with plenty of humor in the mix. Treat yourself to this energetic evening of live music coming to you right here in the Borough: it’s all for a good cause.
