GREENEVILLE, TN – An upcoming holiday concert with popular Christian comedienne Chonda Pierce has sold out.
“Chonda fans were just waiting for an opportunity to see her,” Lindy Riley, director of the Takoma Hospital Foundation, said. “We sold out 19 days before the concert!”
The concert will be held Monday, Nov. 27, at 7 p.m. at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center.
Pierce has sold out every performance in the Tri-Cities during the past five years.
Proceeds from the concert will benefit the Greeneville-Greene County Emergency Medical Services Substation Project.
Construction is nearing completion on the project to renovate the former medical office building of Drs. Robert Bridges and Frederick Myers, near the corner of the Asheville Highway and Coolidge Street, and to add a three-bay ambulance garage.
When construction is completed, the new substation will serve residents in Greene County, especially those who live along the Asheville and Newport Highways, and those who live downtown Greeneville, Riley said. “These residents are currently served by a substation on Depot Street or in Mosheim,” Riley noted. “There’s also a nearby railroad track that often slows the EMS down. This prime location will definitely decrease response time and therefore save lives in this area.”
