Kellerman concert to save pygmies set for Sunday

“The Kellerman Uganda Benefit Concert, A Humanitarian Effort to Save the Batwa Pgymy’s of Africa” will feature the Heritage Singers and the Grass Valley Male Voice Choir on Sunday at Indian Springs Vineyard.

The Heritage Singers ministry, which began in 1971 in Portland, Ore., has traveled to more than 50 foreign countries and every state in the United States.

Formed in 1997, the Grass Valley Male Voice Choir, with about 40 members, has raised funds for many nonprofit organizations, including Habitat for Humanity, churches and area fire departments.

All proceeds at Sunday’s second annual fund-raising concert will go toward a hospital former Nevada City residents Dr. Scott and Carol Kellermann are building in the Mukono district in Uganda. Several Rotary groups have already raised $70,000 for the clinic, but more funds are needed.

Wine tasting is at 1 p.m. The concert is from 2 to 5 p.m.

The suggested donation is $25 per ticket.

Indian Springs Vineyard is at 16110 Indian Springs Road in Penn Valley.

Call the Indian Springs Vineyard tasting room at 478-1068 or the Penn Valley Community Church at 432-1161 for ticket information and reservations.
