Tampa, FL (PRWEB) August 26, 2009
The Tampa Bay Committee To Bless Israel is taking the Bay Area by storm, breaking down denominational barriers and uniting people for one purpose: raising awareness of the importance of Israel to the United States and raising funds for organizations in Israel on three consecutive nights at concerts headlined by Integrity recording artist Paul Wilbur.
The trio of concerts begins Friday, August 28, 2009, at Without Walls Central Church, 777 Carpenters Way, Lakeland at 7:30pm. It continues Saturday, August 29th, at Bell Shoals Baptist Church, 2102 Bell Shoals Rd. Brandon at 7pm, and culminates on Sunday, August 30th, at Suncoast Cathedral, 2300 62nd Ave North, St. Petersburg at 7pm.

Tickets are $10 in advance for adults for each concert. Children, military, and college students are $5 for advance tickets. At the door, tickets increase to $15 for adults and $10 for children. To purchase tickets or make a donation visit Tampa Bay Committee To Bless Israel or call 813-221-4500. Tickets are available online until midnight August 27th.
Why raise money for Israel? Due to constant terrorist attack, this tiny nation's resources are constantly being allocated towards her military defense. In the meantime, the people of the land are impoverished, hungry, and in need of medical attention and strong leadership.
Proceeds from these concerts will be going to various centers of socioeconomic needs in Israel. Chief among the 2009 goals of the Tampa Bay Committee to Bless Israel are raising money for Bet Elazraki Children's Home in Netanya, American Friends of Magen David Adom (the Israeli version of the Red Cross), for the Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon, and support for the Israel Leadership Institute in Sderot. No stranger to meeting goals, TCBI dedicated an ambulance for Ashdod, Israel, in 2008 at Shoresh David Messianic Synagogue in Tampa, Florida.
Previously with the groups Harvest and Israel's Hope, Paul Wilbur is now an Integrity Music solo recording artist and the founder of Wilbur Ministries. Wilbur and his team travel throughout the United States and the world sharing the love of God through Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah.
In 1990 Paul recorded his first release with Integrity entitled "Up To Zion." Since then he has recorded five more solo albums including three performed live in Jerusalem. He has also recorded seven projects in Spanish and two in Portuguese.
