Event Description

Amazing Grace in Surival: A Music Festival Joining Hearts in Celebration is a fundraiser to aid those in Oneida who are survivors of the flood waters last summer. The festival will be held on Sunday, November 17, 2013 beginning at 1:00 pm in St. Patrick’s Church in Oneida.

The event which is being sponsored by St. Patrick’s Music Ministry and the Oneida Council of Churches will be Ecumenical in nature and will include performers from local churches and area musicians in CNY, and will feature individual or group performers for fifteen or thirty minute segments.

In lieu of admission, a free-will offering will be taken to help those people who lost so much of their lives from the flooding of at least 150 homes, with many being redlined to be torn down while the rest still have a ways to go to at least replenish their needs especially around the holiday time.

A raffle of a framed print by the recently deceased local artist James Colway is underway. Also on the ticket are cash prizes of $75 and $50 to be awarded as part of the raffle.

The festival is open to the public to come for all or part of the entertainment as a show of support for the survivors.
