The North County Immigration and Citizenship Center will hold a benefit concert next weekend to support its mission to assist immigrants on their journey to citizenship.
The annual fundraising concert at 7 p.m. on Sunday, May 20, takes place at Solana Beach Presbyterian Church, located on 120 Stevens Avenue at Lomas Santa Fe Drive.
San Diego’s own Daneen Wilburn will perform inspirational jazz and gospel with her quintet featuring pianist and saxophonist Kamau Kenyatta, bassist Michael Kennedy, drummer Richard Sellers and trumpeter Curtis Taylor.
The faith-based nonprofit is a full-service legal immigration practice with three Department of Justice-accredited representatives authorized to practice basic immigration law. There are currently 45 open cases, and the center has a 100 percent success rate.
“The number of office visitors and phone calls have more than doubled since last year,” said Executive Director Linda Martinez-Haley, adding that funds from the concert will help the center serve the growing case load, which now includes DACA recipients “living in fear of being separated from their families and community.”
Tickets for the benefit are $50 in advance or $60 at the door.
