Classical music lovers listened to local musicians perform at La Crescenta Presbyterian Church on Sunday all in the name of a worthy cause.
More than 100 guests attended the recital to help raise funds for construction materials needed for a housing project in Tijuana, Mexico.
The men's ministry collected the money for their fourth annual trip to Tijuana, said Brent Kuszyk, communications director.
"We do this because we are called to help," Kuszyk said. "They are our neighbors."
The ministry raised more than $3,000, Kuszyk said, adding that the cost of the materials is about $5,500.
But the church's mission and outreach committee will double the amount with a matching grant, he said.
"To be able to have a house with a foundation and locking doors and the bare minimums is what we can give to people," said member Jim Sedgwick.
