Hilbert Students Raise Money for Local Church

Hilbert College students are getting together to help raise money for a local church.

The event will take place on November 11th at Renovation Church in Buffalo. At this event you can expect basket raffles, live music, food sponsored by Rosina Food Products, and more entertainment.

Jon Evans, a senior at Hilbert College, and his team Voita, Lexi and David, are hosting an event at Renovation Church in Buffalo, aiming to raise money for school supplies along with the food drives that the church hosts every year.

Evans, a business management major going into his senior year at Hilbert College, has been a musician for Renovation Church for five years and is now the music director and event manager. He enjoys playing, writing, and producing music.

“This is a time where we can all get together, have a good time and raise money for a good cause,” said Evans. The students are looking to raise around $300 and other donations are accepted as well.

Evans will perform live at this event as well. He has been performing here for over five years, and he recently was able to perform with some famous Gospel artists. After the recent shooting at the Tops on Jefferson Avenue in Buffalo, Evans helped as a sound engineer at the Greater Refuge Temple of Christ Church, to honor the victims of the shooting. At this event he was able to work with Israel Houghton, Bebe Winans and Hezekiah Walker. Each of these artists have won a Grammy Award for their music.

If you are looking to donate even though you cannot attend, there will be donation boxes set up around Hilbert’s campus and a GoFundMe set up. There is also a donation link on the Renovation Church’s website. More information will be posted around campus, and on Hilbert’s social media accounts.
