Johnny Rivers, whose 17 gold records and 29 chart hits include "Memphis," "Mountain of Love," "Midnight Special," "Secret Agent Man," "Poor Side of Town" and "Summer Rain," is coming to the Visalia Fox Theatre on Saturday, February 27.
The two-time Grammy Award winner, who has sold more than 30 million records, will perform at a benefit for Hands in the Community, a nonprofit Christian ministry in Tulare and Kings Counties.
"This is Hands in the Community's largest fundraiser of the year," said Lester Moon, the organization's founder and executive director. "All of the proceeds go directly to us, and we in turn are able to buy materials.
"HNC currently has over 30 major home repairs with high importance on our project list," added Moon. "These include fence and roof repairs, new handicap ramps, flooring, house painting, plumbing, electrical upgrades and modifying entryways and bathrooms for handicapped access."
Funding will be used to offset parts or material costs to allow moving these critical projects forward to completion. Volunteers are available to provide the labor required at no charge.
Many of these projects will enable individuals to remain in their homes by providing improved accessibility and safety. Providing independence and increasing self-sufficiency improves the quality of life for these community members and improves their well-being. HNC will provide project support to the seniors, adults, children, families and at-risk youth within the community without discrimination.
