UMO to hold benefit concert

MOUNT OLIVE — The 5th annual Sing for Another Day benefit concert to raise money for Southeastern Cancer Care is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 27, at 7 p.m., in Southern Bank Auditorium on the University of Mount Olive campus. The concert will include performances by University of Mount Olive students, faculty, staff, and alumni who would like to exhibit their talents while raising money for a worthy cause.

The event is organized by Sisterhood of Crown and Martlet (SOCAM), a University of Mount Olive student service group. Last year, more than $700 was raised for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. SOCAM will also sell “Cures for the Colors” t-shirts before and during the concert. All proceeds will go to Southeastern Cancer Care, a local non-profit organization that benefits eastern North Carolina cancer patients and their families. To learn more, visit

The concert will be free, but donations will be accepted. For more information, to order your t-shirt, or to sponsor this event, please contact Heather Jordan, SOCAM president, at
