Jason Brown to perform at Habitat for Humanity of Marion County’s Dessert Concert

Pella — Country music recording artist and Marion County native Jason Brown will perform at Habitat for Humanity of Marion County, Inc.’s  (HFHMCI) annual Home Sweet Home Dessert Concert on Friday, February 28, 2014 at the Pella Opera House.

“Habitat for Humanity provides valuable resources for a person to better themselves and their situation,” said Brown. “I’m honored to have been asked to be part of this year’s event.”

The 4th annual Home Sweet Home event is co-sponsored by State Farm agent Kevin Van Wyk and Marion County Bank and will begin at 6:30 p.m. with a social hour and silent auction. Guests will be treated to light hors d’ouerves and desserts throughout the evening while bidding on silent and live auction items donated by many Marion County and Iowa organizations. The evening will conclude with a performance by Jason Brown.

“The dessert concert is our primary fundraising event of the year,” said HFHMCI Executive Director Lisa Crabbs. “We invite the residents of Marion County to our event and appreciate their continued support of our mission to build homes, communities and hope.”

The money raised at this event will help Habitat for Humanity of Marion County build homes for our partner families in Pella, Knoxville and Pleasantville during 2014. Tickets may be purchased for $15 in advance by contacting the Pella Opera House at 641-628-8625 or Habitat for Humanity of Marion County at 641-828-8844.
