ACU students have come together to organize a free concert for students while raising awareness for the Wishing Well organization.
Wishing Well is a nonprofit organization led by students that provides wells for people around the world. The wells are sources of water for people who live in harsh conditions that make it difficult to reach clean water.
Donations will be collected during the concert to fund the construction of a well in Afghanistan. This well will benefit nomadic women and their children who have been separated from their villages and are in need of clean water.
The concert will feature four female performers: Kara DuBose, Abby Butler, KrisAnn Christian and Claire Hardin. It will be a time for students to listen to ACU women display their talent, while recognizing organizations that support and uplift women around the world.
Candace Berrier, Wishing Well co-director and senior elementary education major from Fort Worth, said the goal for the show is to raise awareness of the Wishing Well organization and the Eternal Threads and Handbags of Hope programs.
The show will take place at 7 p.m. Nov. 10 in the University Park clubhouse. Desserts, crafts and Handbags for Hope merchandise will be sold to raise funds for the organizations.
Casey Monsees, Wishing Well co-director and senior history major from Denver, Colo., encourages students to attend the show and enjoy the wonderful music and talent of these women.
“It’s so simple to make a difference, even in college, by coming to the show and listening to the music,” Monsees said.
Abby Butler, sophomore worship ministry major from Dallas, said she is excited to be part of the show.
“We’re blessed to live where we do, and so I’m really excited about getting to do something good for the women who weren’t so fortunate,” Butler said.
