The Los Altos United Methodist Church will host a benefit concert on Saturday, March 12 at 7pm to help children visit their mothers in Chowchilla State Prison this Mother’s Day.
The benefit will feature folk singer Mark Haskett, who will be performing “The Prophet” by Kahlil Gibran. The proceeds will benefit “Get on the Bus,” which raises money to help children visit parents in prison.
The children will be spending the day with their mothers at Chowchilla. In addition to providing children transportation to the prison, the church will be providing travel/stay-in-touch bags. Many of the children rarely see their mothers because they are in the care of relatives who are unable to make the hours-long journey.
Tickets are available in advance at Los Altos United Methodist Church, 5950 E. Willow St., and at the door for $15.
