THANK YOU for raising $5,524 towards Bridges to Independence Sullivan House Family Shelter! (concert December 12)

You can still donate here:


Clarendon Presbyterian Church will build on its support for Bridges to Independence’s Sullivan House Family Shelter by presenting a benefit Zoom concert on Saturday, December 12 at 8 p.m. featuring singer/songwriter/harpist, Gillian Grassie.  Ron Bookbinder and James Fisher have offered to sponsor the event so that all proceeds will go to the families of Sullivan House, Arlington’s largest emergency family shelter, which hosts 45 beds and serves about 300 clients a year – two thirds of them children. 


Funds raised will support the need for supplies for clients, including food, linens, clothes and other requirements.  Information to register in advance and donate will be available next week, with giving levels at $10, $25 and $50 (or more, if you are feeling generous!) 

Gillian Grassie will perform for about an hour, featuring her own music, along with some contemporary and holiday songs.  Gillian is an award-winning singer/songwriter from Philadelphia who has appeared world wide, and competed on NPR's Tiny Desk Concert series. Her artistry with the harp takes the instrument to unusual styles and places, and when combined with her songwriting and highly distinctive vocals, promises a wonderful evening.  She has been a guest performer multiple times over the years at Clarendon to great acclaim.  Her website is
