ILLINOIS BIBLE INSTITUTE Contemporary Christian WCIC/PEORIA, OSF ST. FRANCIS MEDICAL CENTER, and THE CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL OF ILLINOIS held an event on NOVEMBER 30th at PEORIA's RAVE MOTION PICTURES theaters to preview the GOSPEL MUSIC CHANNEL movie, "The Heart Of Christmas," inspired by the true story of local boy DAX LOCKE.
Contemporary Christian artist MATTHEW WEST, who appears in the movie and whose latest CHRISTMAS single is the title song for the movie, performed some songs for the crowd of 2,700, who attended six sold-out screenings at the multiplex. All proceeds went to the CHERISH EVERY MOMENT DAX LOCKE FOUNDATION. The event raised over $42,000 for the charity.
The film made its GMC debut on DECEMBER 4th.
