Frogmore Plantation and Sevier Memorial United Methodist Church are sponsoring a fundraiser for UMCOR (United Methodist Corp on Relief), which is actively rescuing and rehabilitating victims that have been captured or sold into human trafficking.
The fundraiser — “Journey Through the South with Song” — will be held on Friday, April 28, beginning 5:30 p.m. at the Frogmore Plantation church.
The program will be a musical journey including gospel, Gershwin and rock‘n’roll. Narration intertwined with trivia and live vocalists will depict the evolution of America’s music.
Vocalists performing will be Lynn Beach Smith, Bobby Sasser, Tremaine Ford, and Brandon McRaney
Four young girls between the ages of 11 and 14 were recently rescued and are protected at the Methodist Children’s Home in Ruston. Their therapy sometimes includes equine therapy.
Rut and Wanda Horne recently donated a horse for their program.
Several of the young people rescued by UMCOR will be present to see the presentation.
Refreshments will be served after the presentation at the Frogmore Plantation House.
Call 318-757-2453 for reservations. Payment of $25 per person by credit card or check will help save one more child from the horrors of human trafficking.
