The Hope Church Satisfies Its $10,000 Pledge For Jones High School Band Students

ORLANDO – The Hope Church recently hosted the Hope Sacred Jazz Series featuring Grammy Award Winning Saxophonist Kirk Whalum and the new band Director of Jones High School, ‘Naomi Joy’ Nelson, to benefit the Jones High School band program. The show was hosted by Archbishop Allen Wiggins, who pledged to ensure a minimum donation of $10,000 from the net proceeds of the event for his high school alma mater, where some students cannot afford to rent instruments and others are homeless. The concert ended up assisting The Hope Church in satisfying its pledge to Jones High School Band and is still hopeful for additional funds to allow for a donation beyond its pledge. Bishop Wiggins believes that changing the future starts with investing in the youth, whether in technology, education, arts or ministry – all of which he does through The Hope Church and Frontline Innovation Studios.
