For the fifteenth year in a row, music will fill the halls of First United Methodist Church this weekend to support Habitat for Humanity.

A Lord-Built House is being held at First United Methodist Church located at 823 Merchant Street Sunday afternoon. The annual fundraiser will include a lineup featuring the Emporia State Acapella Choir, the Emporia Chorale and the Emporia High School Chorale.

Event organizer Sally Conard explains the concert fundraiser began after organizers were trying to develop a unique fundraiser that stood out from others.

This year's concert carries some extra meaning according to Conard as Habitat for Humanity is set to celebrate their 30 year anniversary in the Emporia community this fall. The cost of admission to Sunday's concert is a suggested donation of $10.

A raffle drawing for a new Traeger grill will also be taking place. All proceeds will go to benefit Habitat's next house build.

The concert begins at 3 pm Sunday afternoon.
