Granny Connection hosting Saturday fund-raising concert

You can enjoy music and story-telling at a Saturday event at the Columbus Learning Center and help orphaned African children.

Song & Story: Grimm and Gulley will begin at 6:30 p.m. at the auditorium in the learning center, on Central Avenue. It will feature Columbus singer-songwriters Tim Grimm and Jan Lucas-Grimm, as well Phillip Gulley, a national best-selling author and Quaker pastor.

Tickets are $25 for the live show, or $15 to watch a live stream. Proceeds will go to benefit the Granny Connection. The group formed in 2008 and focuses on raising funds to help African grandmothers and their orphaned grandchildren. In some countries in sub-Saharan Africa, up to 60 percent of AIDS orphans are living in extreme poverty in grandmother-headed households.

You can buy tickets at Viewpoint Books or at granny connection dot org.

Masks will be required.
