The Imperial Valley Choral Society would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all the Imperial Valley residents and visitors who attended the annual Gift Concert to the Community at Southwest High School on Dec. 2.
We would also like to thank those who sponsored the concert and this year's Madrigal Feaste: Ginger and John Ryerson, Guille and Rod Tuttle, Dr. Cyril Gostich, Joel Jacklich, Valley Women Magazine, American Linen, Reliance Communications, Coni S. Stokely Insurance, Desert Security, Randy Wells, Rutter Communication, Imperial Valley Press, Mike Nicholas Photography and Reddy Ice.
Our thanks also go to those special individuals who helped to make the concert and Madrigal Feaste a resounding success: Don Thompson and Sizzler, Bob Horn, Ju'BELL'ation from First Christian Church, Dick Slobig, Lisa Pendley and Margaret Chairez.
At the concert, the audience and performers donated a total of 1,288 pounds of food, which was given to the Imperial Valley Food Bank and was distributed to Loaves and Fishes and the Sheriff's Office for Christmas baskets. However, there is still a need for food donations to meet the needs of Valley residents. Please contact the Imperial Valley Food Bank, American Red Cross or an agency of your choice and donate today.
