Adventist Health Hosts a Celebration of Thanksgiving

October 28, 2011

Adventist Health is pleased to present the third annual Celebration of Thanksgiving Concert, featuring the a cappella group Committed, winners of last season’s NBC show, “The Sing-Off”.

The concert takes place on Saturday, November 19 at the New Hope Community Church and is the hospital’s gift to the community. Tickets are required and space is limited. Tickets are distributed on a first come, first serve basis. Distribution locations are posted on the hospital’s web site

The men of Committed have seen the power of the human voice to entertain and, more importantly, its power to change lives. They impressed more than nine million TV viewers with their engaging stage presence, easy going camaraderie and dedication to their faith. The concert will also feature the vibrant vocals of recording artist and local radio host Georgene Rice.

“The Celebration of Thanksgiving concert series, is designed to bring the community together for an inspirational evening, states Tom Russell, president and CEO of Adventist Health.

“It provides the hospital a chance to again thank the metro area for the faith they have placed in us for more than a century.”

Admission to the event is free when accompanied with a concert ticket and the donation of a non-perishable food item at the door for the Oregon Food Bank.
