Gathering Band to Perform for Project Potential

Our church has a strong history of members of our church family participating in Project Potential’s Dancing (and More) with the Potential Stars. Last year, organist Connie Burleson and choir member Ginger Briggs both participated. This year, First Presbyterian will be represented by the Gathering Band.
Project Potential was begun to encourage more students in our community to enroll in a college or university after graduating from high school. Since its inception in 1996, it has expanded its vision in order to meet the needs of a growing number of economically disadvantaged students in the Lexington City School system by adding services that provide comprehensive support for these students throughout high school. Each year, Project Potential holds a fundraiser to support its programs that help these students who would not otherwise have the opportunity to attend college. In most cases, the students helped by Project Potential will be the first in their family to attend college.

You can support Project Potential – AND the Band – by casting your vote at Donations are $10 per vote, and proceeds go to help youths right here in our community, helping to make their college dreams come true. The show will be held January 26, 2020 at 4:00 PM at the Civic Center in Lexington and is open to the public.
