The Salvation Army of Salina is hosting a Benefit Concert with Christian Artists Sanctus Real, Unspoken, and JJ Weeks on Friday, April 5, 2024, at Tony’s Pizza Events Center.  Tickets range in price from $23, $33 and $45 for VIP.  

This past season, the Salvation Army fell $20,000 short of their Christmas Kettle Goal.  The Salvation Army depends on these funds to operate throughout the year.  

“The Kettle Campaign is our biggest fundraiser of the year.  It helps us with about 35% of our annual budget.  Without these funds we are not able to meet the needs of our community.  This concert will hopefully help us to raise the funds that are needed to offset the loss during our Kettle Campaign,” said Salvation Army Lt. Luke Hursh

The funds raised are used for helping with Rental Assistance, Food Service, including our feeding program, Shelter, food and other items for Fire Victims, Youth Programs, Music Programs, Rehabilitation for individuals involved with Drugs and Alcohol, Summer Camps, and more.  “We are hoping to sell out.  We have 800 tickets and have sold about 75 at last count.  If we do not sell enough tickets this will set us back even more.”  

Tickets for the Concert can be purchased at Tony’s Pizza Events Center Box Office or at  

The Salvation Army is also looking for Volunteers to help with this event and other activities throughout the year. Volunteers are vital to our operation. If we don’t have them throughout the year, we struggle to meet needs. We need volunteers for our Thrift Store, our Emergency Disaster Services Team, Food Servers, Grounds Keeping, and more.
