Annual concert offers hope to grieving families

SPENCER – The annual Voices of Hope concert will take place from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday at Library Park.
Organized by Lori and Steve Yang, the event has been dubbed a “celebration of life and healing through music.”
It allows families who are dealing with the loss of a child a day of remembrance.
The couple’s son, Michael, died unexpectedly at the age of 23 months in November 2001.
The music is a mix of inspirational, praise and songs of remembrance.
The event will include games for children.
The $2 entry fee also serves as a raffle ticket. Children age 12 and younger get in free.
There will be lawn seating, so feel free to bring blankets and chairs.
Food and beverages will be available for purchase during the event. Funds raised go to the Michael Yang Foundation, which provides scholarships and supports a music program for children under the age of 7.
The memorial foundation also funds Circle of Hope, a parents’ grief support group started by the Yangs and another bereaved parent, Bill Smith.
The group meets at 7 p.m. the second Thursday of each month at 2290 Statesville Blvd. There is no fee for counseling services.
For more information, call 704-630-0310 or visit michaelyangfound.org.
