Christy Biggs, chairwoman of the Salvation Army Swon concert committee, talks about the upcoming Swon Brothers concert.
1 How does this concert help?
"Their partnership has been such a benefit to the Salvation Army, because every year we use the funds we raise for our social services. It has been a huge blessing for us each year."
2 How does the Salvation Army use the money?
"All the social services the Salvation Army provides: For food, for clothing, utilities, different things they provide."
3 When do tickets go on sale?
"Tickets go on sale Monday and they're $20 apiece. They will be at American Bank of Oklahoma on Chandler Road or Eventbrite.com."
4 How are you able to get the Swons to perform each year?
"They make it a priority. It has not been a problem at all. There have been years where we've said to them 'are you sure this is what you want to do,' and they're ready. It's pretty much a given we're going to do a show each year."
5 How much money does the concert raise?
"After all the expenses, we usually come out with $15,000 or $20,000. We hope to grow it."
