Rock Concert to Benefit Habitat Affordable Housing Project in Summit, February 13th

Rock Concert to Benefit Habitat Affordable Housing Project in Summit

The Tattered Prophets, a rock group with the Music Ministry at the Shrine of Saint Joseph in Stirling, will play a concert to raise funds for the Summit Habitat Affordable Housing condo.  The concert starts at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 13, in the Auditorium at Central Presbyterian Church, 70 Maple St., Summit.

The ensemble plays a lively variety of danceable musical styles--from the Beatles to the B-52s.  Come one, come all.  The public is invited, and a dessert reception is included. Tickets will be sold at the door for a suggested donation of $25 for adults and $20 for seniors.  Children under 15 attend free.

The Prophets got their start two years ago to raise funds for the Shrine and went on to perform for several more charities, raising a total of $11,000.  Members are Ralph Carbone on keyboard and vocals; Luc Dicus on bass and vocals; Ellen Houlihan on guitar and vocals; Scott Juliano on drums; Cathy McMahon on flute, keyboard, saxophone and vocals; and Mike Myers on guitar, harmonica, keyboard and vocals.

Volunteers are needed to bring desserts and for set-up and clean-up.  To help with the event, call Dave Riley at (973) 223-9035.

This is the latest fundraiser to satisfy the $300,000 contribution promised by local congregations for the 6-unit Affordable Housing building at 39 Morris Ave.  So far, congregations have pledged $265,500 and donated $145,431 in cash, said Blair Bravo, Morris Habitat Executive Director.

Other funds for the $1.4 million condo complex come from various grants, including $530,000 from the Summit Affordable Housing Trust Fund to purchase the property.  Contributions in kind include donations of labor and furnishings by corporations, sweat equity from the six families who will live in the units and volunteer workers from the congregations.

Volunteer construction work on the site takes place from Tuesdays through Saturdays. If you would like to donate your labor, call Carolyn Haraksin, Morris Habitat's Program Coordinator at (973) 891-1934.
