SOS preparing for big benefit concert March 29

Tickets are available for a big fundraising concert to benefit SOS operations locally.

Jason Pritchett of "America's Got Talent" fame is performing at the Granada Theatre on March 29, with Emporia's own Callie Agler-Medrano opening. SOS Director Connie Cahoone says Agler-Medrano helped to connect Pritchett with SOS, but the cause of fighting abuse is intensely personal for her as well.

A pre-concert event is also planned, with hors d'oeuvres and auction "experiences," according to SOS Community Relations Director Susan Faler.
