Music motivates benefit for local boy who suffers from muscular dystrophy

An all-ages concert today will not only provide family entertainment for the community, but also will help a Glenwood Springs youngster in need.

Concert for Chaz, at 7 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church, will benefit the Jerri Israel Family Fund for Chaz Israel-Olson, a 4-year-old Cambodian adoptee who suffers from congenital muscular dystrophy, mental retardation, low muscle mass and chronic hepatitis.

Performers at the show include Craig and Lorraine Curry; the Rocky Tops barbershop quartet; pianists Annie Flynn and Sue Plush; singer Amy Brokering; and flutist Karin White.

Chaz’s mother, Jerri, and maternal grandparents, D.J. and Emmett Zerr, are longtime members of the church, located at 1016 Cooper Ave. Concertgoers can make donations to the Jerri Israel Family Fund at the door, or at Alpine Bank branches throughout the valley.

Contact First Presbyterian Church at 945-6340 for more information.

Contact April E. Clark: 945-8515, ext. 518
