Local church holds Soulfire 70s concert to benefit refugees

Late Saturday afternoon, October 8, 2016, Trinity Presbyterian Church in Arlington held a rock concert by the group SoulFire, to raise funds for the church’s participation (along with another church in McLean) on assisting a future immigrant refugee family, under the supervision of Lutheran Social Services which works directly with DHS and the Department of State.

The concert featured popular disco music from the 1970s and 1980s, especially “China Grove”, “The USSR” and “Hey Me, What Do You Want to Do?”

The concert was moved indoors to a gymnasium due to the outermost bands of Hurricane Matthew.  An Indonesian food truck was available.
