Lighthouse Chorus concert to benefit Salvation Army food pantry

The Lighthouse Chorus will host a concert to benefit a local food pantry at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 26, at Summit Church, which is located at 1700 W. River Road, in Niles.

Admission is a non-perishable food item for the Niles Salvation Army food pantry, which provides food services to needy families in the greater Niles area.

The Lighthouse Chorus is a group of men gathering weekly to join their voices in song. The chorus sings four-part a-cappella primarily in the barbershop style of music.

Chartered in October 2000, the group has performed its family-friendly brand of entertainment for a variety of audiences all over Michiana.

Jan Nowak, of the Niles Salvation Army, said the group is incredibly supportive to the community in addition to being very talented.

She said the chorus’ concert comes at a time of need for the food pantry as it gets ready to serve many needy families throughout the spring and summer months.

Nowak said donations received from the Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive have been low the past few years. The pantry, she said, relies on that drive to carry it through the summer.

“The generosity of them saying they would do this for us now is essential,” Nowak said. “I am hoping that the public will respond to how fun and talented these guys are and for our continued need for this pantry.”
