A special concert in support of Richmond's Dream Auction takes place Friday, April 4 at Gilmore Park United Church.

The Dream Catchers' Concert will feature pianists, violinists, cellists and solo vocalists. Among the performers is Matthew Nakagawa and four friends on their seven-string violins. Miri Lee, Danica Kell, Kunal Moorjani, Minjee Yoon and the Richmond Singers ensemble will also perform.

The concert will benefit the annual Dream Auction, which has raised $340,000 in its 12 years to initiatives aimed at alleviating poverty in Richmond. Past recipients of funds have included Chimo, Richmond Food Bank, breakfast and lunch programs at Richmond schools, a community kitchen for teens and free community meals at St. Alban, Gilmore Park and Richmond Bethel churches.

The April 4 concert begins at 7:30 p.m. at Gilmore Park, 8060 No. 1 Rd. Coffee and dessert to follow. Tickets, $15, available at the door.
