“Youth for Youth” is the theme of a benefit concert to be held this Friday, February 1 and all of the money raised will go to help young orphans in Ecuador. Mountain Crest High School Senior Brooke Jorgensen says she recently went to Ecuador with her family and volunteered at several different orphanages.
After seeing all the need, she has invited all young people in Cache Valley to come out to the concert. The Youth for Youth concert will start at 7 p.m. at Logan High School, chosen for its central location, and Jorgensen says it should be fun.
“We’re getting a bunch of youth talent from across the valley to come in and share their talent and raise money for youth in Ecuador,” Jorgensen says. “There’s a lot of talent that is in this valley.”
The Jorgensens have worked with Forgotten Orphans under the direction of the <a href=”http://www.dandoamor.com/” target=”_blank”>Dando Amor organization</a>, which Jorgensen says means “giving love.”
