We are grateful for the all the time ,committed by the musicians, to make the night a great success . Our gratitude is also extended to our generous event s ponsor Advanced Disposal, Inc. and t he large audience who brought in a great amount of energy to the event. When all was said and done, Sounds of a Mediterranean Spring, raised almost $7,000.00 to help Family Promise of Forsyth County, Inc. empower families out of homelessness and into hopefulness. With our service model, however, based on the efforts of 13 host congregations , several support churches , and numerous community volunteers, for every dollar we receive in donations, Family Promise is able to put $3.00 in direct services back into the community . Through this concert alone , approximately $21,000 of direct services are able to go to families in need of a helping hand, friendly support, a source of encouragement , and empowerment to find 'sustainable independence.'
