SPARROW RECORDS band SANCTUS REAL and ABC reality program “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” hosted a benefit concert in the band’s native TOLEDO, OH. The benefit raised more than $50,000 to be given to the FRISCH family, also of TOLEDO, whose house was selected for a makeover.
The benefit was held last month at CENTENNIAL TERRACE in SYLVANIA, OH. The ticket-only show drew over 5,000 people. The cast of “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" joined the band on-stage during the set.
“The beautiful thing about being a part of the ‘Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’ benefit concert was that we saw OUR community, OUR town, OUR home brought together like never before,” said band frontman MATT HAMMITT. “There’s power when people are unified and there’s a righteousness that’s unbridled when that force is molded to serve, love and sacrifice for the ‘greater good.’”
The TOLEDO episode is scheduled to air in NOVEMBER. For more information and show times, click here.
