Anonymous Donor Makes Washington Concert Free

Someone bought out the house for tornado victims
WASHINGTON - Donations are still pouring into Washington in many ways, like cash, food and clothing, but one special person has taken it a step further.

The Peoria Pops Orchestra is scheduled to perform its "Holiday Extravaganza" concert Sunday. Decorations are already on stage at Washington’s Five Points. Tickets were on sale for about $15 a piece, but now no one needs to buy one. An anonymous donor stepped up and bough 800 of them. That means 800 tornado victims can attend the show for free.

"You want an opportunity to bring your family together, maybe put some of those concerns off for a little awhile, enjoy some holiday music, a visit from Santa, some cookies and things like that. It'll be just a good opportunity to do that," said Steve Brown, vice president of the board at Washington Five Points.

Doors open Sunday at 3:30 p.m. and the show starts at 4:00 p.m. Call (309) 444-8222 to reserve your ticket.
