The Gift of Hope Concert, benefitting the Catholic Family Services Gift of Hope fund, drew more than 1,500 people this year.
The fund supports CFS efforts to help individuals to receive services such as adoption services, grief support and other counseling services.
This year, a second show was added after the first sold out.
The concert featured contemporary christian musical artist Mark Schultz.
Schultz himself is adopted and wrote a beautiful song to his birth mother entitled “Everything to Me.”
Schultz incorporated a children’s choir (pictured) as part of his performance.
