Concert at Los Altos UMC Benefits Imagine No Malaria
By Emily Allen, director of communications, Los Altos United Methodist Church
On Sunday evening, Sept. 29, Los Altos United Methodist Church hosted singer-songwriter Bobby Jo Valentine and his band for a concert to benefit Imagine No Malaria. Just over 200 people attended the concert and a dinner that followed.
Dr. Sasha Arjannikova, the California-Nevada Imagine No Malaria field coordinator, spoke during intermission. She shared the work that has already been done in Africa to prevent malaria and a vision of a future with no deaths by malaria. An offering raised nearly $3,000, which will support the California-Nevada Annual Conference’s two-year Imagine No Malaria campaign.
