Give Hope to Jeremiah Wilson with Live Music, Raffles, and More
LANCASTER, Pa.—On Sunday, April 18, the community will come together for a cause at the Jeremiah’s Journey Benefit Concert at Tellus360 (24 E. King Street in Lancaster) from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Enjoy live music, a silent auction, raffles, and more to benefit the nonprofit Help Hope Live in honor of Jeremiah Wilson, a Coatesville 33-year-old who has been living with quadriplegia since a June 2020 car accident. Free virtual viewing options are also available.
The goal of the event is to raise $5,000 towards the cost of a wheelchair van for Jeremiah, who was injured in June 2020 when he fell asleep at the wheel and crashed his work vehicle just thirty minutes from his destination. Jeremiah is continuing his emotional and physical recovery at home following rehabilitation at Magee Rehabilitation Hospital in Philadelphia.
