The Widows Project hosting second Christmas benefit concert

Nov 28, 2018

The Widows Project, a Snohomish County resource for the widowed, is hosting their second Christmas benefit concert at the Historic Everett Theatre, 2911 Colby Ave., this Sunday, Dec. 2.

The concert will run from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.

Rolland Wright, the president and founder of the Widows Project has said their goal is to bring together the widowed community, and to bring awareness to widowhood, and to provide holiday cheer for widows during a difficult time of year.

Breath of Aire, a Washington choir group that Wright used to be a part of, will be performing again at this year’s concert.

Wright said his faith was the key factor in starting the Widows Project, and creating this concert.

“I founded the Widows Project from a conviction that the Bible gives us instruction to care for certain people, the poor, the orphan and the widow, and as I researched each of those groups I found that the widow was the most underserved,” Wright said. “I also discovered in the parable of the Good Samaritan that I had walked by the widowed without noticing them, and that I purposed to change that in my life. The Widows Project became a legal entity in December 2015 and a 501c3 non-profit in September 2016.”

The Widows Project is a free online membership community designed for the widowed to receive and access resources such as The Widows Project Magazine, group grief support classes, quarterly events, church information and an organizational directory.

According to their website, their mission is to, “Uniquely serve widows and widowers with the love of Jesus, then provide that model to a coalition of ministries that champion the intentional ministry of serving the widow and widower with the love of Jesus.”

Money raised at the concert will go toward providing resources to the widowed of Snohomish County.

Tickets for the concert are $17.50 and $10 for widows, widowers, and children 12 and under. Doors open at 3:45 p.m.
