The Breath of Aire choir will perform a benefit concert for Cullen Steele of Kent at 7:30 p.m. April 1 at Kent Nazarene Church, 930 E. James St.
The 75-member choir that draws singers from across the state, performs a range of music from patriotic, Americana, country, and show tunes to classical, gospel, contemporary inspirational, and spirituals.
Steele, 11, a fifth-grader at Auburn’s Holy Family Catholic School, needs a heart and double lung transplant as he fights pulmonary atrial hypertension, a serious disease of the arteries connecting the lungs to the heart.
The community has raised $55,000 for the Steele family through the Children’s Organ Transplant Association. More donations are needed to reach the goal of $75,000 for transplant-related expenses for the family.
The concert is free but donations will be collected to go to The Children’s Organ Transplant Association.
