Indianapolis churches hold special events to raise funds for Haiti

Allisonville Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Indianapolis will host a concert by well-known television performers Laura and Rick Hall to help the church fund a mission trip to Haiti. The concert will take place on July 24 at 7 p.m. A group from the church had initially planned a trip to Haiti in January, which was postponed after the massive earthquake struck the country on January 12.

Laura Hall is known as the improvisational pianist on the TV show "Whose Line is it Anyway." She also has performed on other television shows, as well as at the 2007 and 2009 General assemblies, and at the 2010 Quadrennial Assembly. Her husband, Rick Hall, has appeared on such shows as, "Curb Your Enthusiasm," "Saving Grace," "According to Jim," "Seinfeld," and "The Middle."
