The Bucks County Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired successfully coordinated their first annual “Home for the Holidays “ fundraising concert. Over 200 people gathered at the Grace Point Church in Newtown to hear the Bryn Mawr Mainliners perform holiday favorites and classic songs in the barbershop style.

Under the direction of Doug Pratt, the championship 50 person strong a capella chorus performed a variety of songs including Side by Side, Who’s Sorry Now? and This Little Light of Mine. Selections of O Come all Ye Faithful and Silent Night were part of the eight holiday songs featured throughout the program. Four separate quartets performed throughout the night, each demonstrating their own personal style.

Refreshments of seasonal cakes, cider and other beverages were provided for all community members who attended the event.
The successful event raised over $10,000 to support the programs and services of the Bucks County Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (BCABVI). The mission of BCABVI is to provide resources, answers and support to all people with blindness or other visual impairment that maximize their ability to meet life’s daily challenges and realize their continued self-worth and value to our community. Most services are provided free of charge for Bucks County residents.
