Our Hospice concert hits profit record

The 30th annual Our Hospice of South Central Indiana concert featuring pop singer Peter Cetera raised a record $120,000, according to the nonprofit agency.

That’s $20,000 beyond the event’s goal, said organizers, who mentioned that increased raffle ticket sales made the difference.

The Sept. 3 free gathering attracted an estimated 8,000 people on a evening with comfortable weather. It was the first time in several years event organizers avoided some form of severe or inclement weather that limited attendance or curtailed or canceled the outdoor show at Mill Race Park in Columbus.

Besides raffle tickets, the agency raised money by selling food, souvenirs, T-shirts and other items. Plus, a commemorative concert anniversary painting of Mill Race Park by local artist Donna Rosenberg helped the cause. It was purchased in an auction by local residents Keith and Joy Reising.
