Charity Concert raises nice chunk of change for Air Ambulance

I wish I'd been there.

The L. Ron Hubbard Foundation and the Church of Scientology held a charity concert at Saint Hill Manor in the UK, featuring musical styles ranging from the rock of Edgar Winter through the pop of Kate Ceberano, the Jazz of Elena Roggero all the way to the jive of the Jive Aces.

There were more than 1,500 there enjoying the concert and giving their support, including Mayors, District Council Chairmen, Town Councillors, and community leaders from all over the South of England. Also attending were representatives from a wide variety of embassies, including from Cameroon, Bulgaria, Vietnam, Fiji, South Africa, and Liberia. Other guests flew in especially from all over Europe and as far away as the United States and Canada.

The beautiful Kelly Preston hosted the event and presented the check for £50,000 to Sussex Air Ambulance.

Here's a video from this year's concert (the one you have in that post is excellent but it is from 2007): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ljX5Fmo-i4E
