8th Annual Advent Concert 2016

A HUGE thank you to the sold out crowd who attended the 8th Annual Advent Concert - A Christmas To Believe In on November 30th. With all 2,100 seats filled at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center, we raised over $71,000 to help fund the 21st Century School Age Program, which provides before and after school care services to families in need, regardless of their ability to pay.

The Advent Concert wasn't your typical holiday concert. This event was more like a large family celebration with tons of kid friendly activities including holiday themed games, photo booth, hot cocoa bar and caroling prior to the concert. The band, Behind the Eyes, performed an amazing show with a blend of contemporary and classic Christmas favorites with a Trans-Siberian Orchestra feel. The YMCA of the Fox Cities was very excited to be a part of this meaningful Christmas event, and to develop a new partnership with New Hope Church.

The YMCA of the Fox Cities and Behind the Eyes would like to recognize all of those who worked behind the scenes to make the concert happen including:

  • YMCA Mission Emphasis Team
  • Life Promotions
  • Joe McPhetridge, Joements Photography
  • Rico Tomasi, Stage Manager
  • Erik Johnson, Lighting Director
  • New Hope Church Tech Team
  • New Hope Church Volunteers
  • Carolers from Christ the Rock Community Church

Many thanks to those who bought tickets, shared on social media, invited neighbors and countless others who served in many ways leading up to this event.


Also, we would like to thank the many individuals and organizations that sponsored this event:
