Popular gospel family plays local benefit

GREENVILE – Over 600 people filled the Lighthouse Christian Center April 25th to enjoy live gospel music from national recording artists The Collingsworth Family.

The concert was held to benefit the Darke County Pregnancy Help Center, located at 105 W. Third St. in Greenville, which offers aid and education to expecting teens and adult women throughout the county. According to board member Lowell Lavy, the center has a program called Earn While You Learn that helps expecting mothers afford infant care items while being educated on how to care for their child independently once they give birth. The organization also holds an annual fundraiser called the Baby Bottle Campaign to help offset costs of the program. There is also different private and business donors to help with expenses as well.

The April 25 concert was a success, according to Lavy. Not only did the center raise some much needed money, 92 packages of diapers were also donated that night. The Collingworth Family, from New Richmond, Ohio, entertained the crowd with their world class gospel music.
