Adopt a Family’s annual fundraiser, ‘One People, One Song,’ to be April 18

The Adopt a Family Foundation will host its annual fundraiser April 18 at Green Acre in San Diego. Music is the theme of the evening: “Am Echad, Shir Echad: One People, One Song.”

The significance of the theme is to promote healing through music for Adopt a Family Foundation’s victims of terror and to strengthen bonds and harmony for all. A portion of the proceeds will sponsor music therapy for the children of Sderot, Israel, who have been affected by post-traumatic stress disorder.

The event will be held at Chef Brian Malarkey’s Green Acre restaurant from 8-11 p.m. and will feature a dinner, silent auction and a musical performance by the widely acclaimed Todo Mundo, a San Diego band that blends the musical flavors of Middle Eastern music, Spanish rumba, reggae and samba.

Also, award-winning filmmaker Laura Bialis will introduce her new documentary, “Rock in the Red Zone,” a tale of music and romance on the frontiers of a never-ending war.

Dan Cohen, morning anchor for CBS News 8, will emcee the event, co-chaired this year by Sheryl Goodman and Doris Elihu.
