On Sunday night, February 21, leading stars from Broadway, The Metropolitan Opera, Lincoln Center, and Carnegie Hall will perform "Sending Our Love to Haiti," a benefit concert at Bergen PAC (Bergen Performing Arts Center.)
This benefit concert, underwritten by The Presbyterian Church at Tenafly and Temple Sinai of Bergen County, will send 100 percent of the proceeds to Haiti Relief Funds of the Church World Service, United Jewish Appeal of Northern New Jersey, Catholic Relief Services and the Reformation Hope Orphanage in Port au Prince and Hospital Sacre Coeur in Milot, Haiti.
Honorary Co-Chairs of the event are The Reverend Dr. Eileen Lindner of The Presbyterian Church at Tenafly and Rabbi Jordan Millstein of Temple Sinai of Bergen County. "We're blessed with an abundance of talent, energy, and generosity of spirit in Manhattan and Bergen County," said Dr. Lindner. "This initiative began when one person asked, 'What can we do to help?" Rabbi Millstein added, "I am thrilled to be part of this groundbreaking interfaith event to help the people of Haiti. There is nothing more inspiring than people of different faiths joining together to make a difference in this world. I am confident that the citizens of Bergen County will support this evening of entertainment for a critically important cause."
