Now celebrating their Third Decade, they perform approximately 50 times a year at retirement homes, hospitals, and civic functions with all moneys being donated to Children's Hospital. In the past few years, SBC has donated almost $40,000. Thanks to all of you who request the good music and thereby help out our precious children in their time of need. God bless you all.
