YouTube Stars Join Local Artist To Benefit Cancer Foundation
YouTube sensations Andrew Garcia and Gabe Bondoc will join local musician Randy Allen for a “Blessed” benefit show presented by Glorified Supply Co.
Kroc Center in Kapolei hosts the benefit concert, which begins at 6 p.m. Jan. 10 in support of Hawaii Children’s Cancer Foundation.
“One of the things we believe at Glorified Supply Co. is simply (to) do good,” said founder and Waipahu native Jon Jon Ulep. “We wanted to have an event that would help our community and celebrate faith. We believe music brings people together, so what better way to share blessings and feature artists who also share their faith through their artistry?”
Community is a big part of what the company is all about, and Ulep enjoyed meeting new people in the event-planning process.
Local artist Allen has been performing professionally since 2002. He has been featured on Entertainment Tonight and hosts Sansei Waikiki’s open mic night every Saturday.
California native Bondoc has been creating YouTube videos since 2006, and has garnered more than 200,000 YouTube subscribers who stay tuned for his latest music releases.
Fans of American Idol might recognize Garcia from season nine. He most recently released his Hell and Back EP earlier this year and performs with
YouTube comedy group Yesterday, Today, Forever.
“Blessed” tickets cost $55 for VIP and $35 for general admission, and can be purchased online at glorifiedsupplyco.com. VIP tickets include a preshow meet-and-greet session with the artists. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Hawaii Children’s Cancer Foundation.
“When it came to choosing a cause to support, we believe that Hawaii Children’s Cancer Foundation is a wonderful organization that supports local families going through cancer,” Ulep explained.
Faith lifestyle brand Glorified Supply Co.’s mission is to inspire others to do good by putting their faith into action. Portions of clothing sales go toward community projects.
