LOCAL SINGER TO HOLD HOLIDAY BENEFIT CONCERT FOR INTERFACE CHILDREN & FAMILY SERVICES

CAMARILLO, CA – Ventura vocalist Loanne Wullaert is donating her time and talent to help raise funds for Interface Children & Family Services by presenting a special holiday concert, Canzoni Invernali Di Amore (Winter Songs of Love) on Tuesday, December 3, 2013, at 7:00 p.m. at the Ventura Theater. Wullaert, will be performing a collection of seasonal songs, including the holiday favorite, O Holy Night.

Wullaert, who first started singing and playing the piano when she was two years old, is excited that her holiday concert will raise money for Interface. “I was adopted by my mom and dad as an infant, and because of that I have always been aware of how lucky I am,” said singer Wullaert. “There are so many children in this world with no home, no parents, in desperate situations, without hope or love. I believe that you can change the world by making an impact on just one person and letting them know someone cares. So if I can raise money, or help get toys or shoes or whatever for just one child who has nothing, I am taking the steps to accomplish my goals and dreams to make this world a better place.”

A silent auction will also be held at the event as another way to raise money. There is a $10.00 suggested donation for the concert and ages 16 and under are FREE. Additional monetary contributions are also welcome. Attendees are encouraged to bring used shoes (any style, any size, any condition) to the concert to help Interface in their shoes collection fundraising efforts to help supply micro-enterprise programs to third world countries.
