A nationally touring Christian metal band, Hope For The Dying, will be performing at the Cherokee Community Center to help bring in donations to help infants and toddlers. Two popular area acts will also be performing: the Christian band, Till Flames Fall, from Holstein, and Mersa, from Sioux City. These bands will also bring their messages of faith, hope, and respect for life to the audience.
Luke Dreier, booking agent for Rising Sun Booking, and also vocalist for Mersa, says that due to the tremendous support and donations at the benefit show in Cherokee in August, he and the bands have high hopes that area youth will come forward once again to help others in need.
The benefit show in August brought in over 200 food items for the CAP pantry and about 100 school supply items for Mid Sioux. This time, they are asking for baby items to be given to Mid Sioux's Teddy Bear Den and to Birthright of Siouxland. Dreier also notes that even though the November 15 show is a Sunday evening, they will be ending early because the next day is a school day.
Anyone in the community may drop off donations of baby items or cash at the lower level of the Cherokee Community Center starting at 6 p.m. on November 15, or they may bring them to the entry-way of Immaculate Conception Church anytime before then.
Admission to this event is $3.00 with a baby item donation, or $6.00 without a donation. Doors open at 6:30 and the show starts at 7:00.
