These singers appreciate the support they have received and they enjoy sharing their gifts whenever they have the opportunity, as singing is the most heartfelt gift they have to offer. The invitation to perform at the first annual ‘Applause for the Cause’ event will truly be a once-in-lifetime privilege for the Chorus.” The First Annual “Applause for the Cause” Charity Concert featuring Dionne Warwick and Sinbad When: Saturday, June 6, 2009 Doors: 6:15 p.m. Showtime: 7:30 p.m.
