MERRILLVILLE | A free concert and fundraiser will take place from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Saturday at Spill the Beans Café, 7992 Broadway. There is no cover charge.
Drs. Robert Hall and Robert Martin, Lake County chiropractors, will provide musical entertainment in conjunction with a fundraiser for Rapha House. The acoustic guitar duo will play a mix of instrumental and vocal music, including original songs and covers.
Merrillville resident Charissa Barbee, 27, served an internship with Rapha House last fall and she’s working to promote the goals of that organization. Rapha House - from the Hebrew word for healing - is a nonprofit organization centered in Joplin, Mo., that works in Cambodia, Thailand, and Haiti to rescue girls from sex trafficking.
Silk scarves, handbags, bracelets and other items made by the residents at Rapha House to provide a living for themselves will be available for purchase. Items will be sold on a cash or check basis only, and an ATM is located in the cafe.
