Music concert will help send MANA food worldwide

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany church will host a concert to raise money to send food to impoverished areas of the world.

Porterfield Memorial United Methodist Church is teaming up with Darton College and churches in Fitzgerald and Cordele for a concert to benefit the MANA plant in Fitzgerald.

It makes ready to use therapeutic food. These packs of peanut paste are shipped to the world's most severely malnourished children.

Money from tickets sales will be used to buy and distribute the packs.

"For ten dollars there are 965 seats in that auditorium. And so for a ten dollar tickets, by filling up that auditorium, we can literally save a few hundred children, said Steve Jones, Porterfield Music Director.

The concert will be October 10th at 7 p.m. at the Albany Municipal Auditorium. You'll be able to buy and donate MANA products.

Tickets will be on sale at the door. You can buy tickets at ticketriver.com and at the door.
