Benefit Concert for Ruth Clark

Saturday, November 13, 2010 @ 7:30 PM

Pleasant Grove Jr High Auditorium

*Admission is free, but donations are encouraged*

Ruth Clark is a ‘super-mom’. She is married to her best friend Jared. Together they have 4 wonderful children: Joshua (deceased), Katie 8, Nathan 5, and Alice 1. Ruth majored in vocal performance and shares her time and talents with many people. She has organized benefit concerts for others in need, conducted choirs, directed Christmas and Easter programs, and much more. Ruth is not only musically talented but has many other wonderful attributes. She is very outgoing, sensitive to others needs, an eternal optimist, and a hard worker. She never lets challenges get her down.

Ruth will need these attributes and more to fight a disease that now threatens her life. Ruth was recently diagnosed with breast cancer which has now spread into her bones. Doctors have pronounced the cancer terminal; it is not curable and at the moment they are treating it the best they can.

Ruth and Jared have been ‘students’ for the past 10 years. Jared has been working on his PhD and was going to graduate this August, but pushed back his graduation to spend more time with his family. Ruth and Jared are struggling financially trying to meet all the needs of Ruth’s doctor appointments, tests, and chemo therapy. This benefit concert will be held in her honor with all the proceeds going to pay for Ruth’s cancer treatments. Ruth and her family need any help we can give them. Please bring your friends and family members to the concert. It will be a fabulous evening of music with dancing, piano performances, vocal solos, choir performances, flute and guitar solos, and much more!

Come and enjoy a fantastic night of music in honor of Ruth!

Woah! I had no idea that Ruth had breast cancer. That's so sad. I sure wish I lived closer and then I would totally come to the benefit concert. Best wishes to Ruth and her family!

We're thinking 'baby girl' might try to make her appearance around that time. Is there another way we can make a contribution? We love Ruth and would like to help out in any way we can.. (and we'd love to attend if my prego belly is still there...)
