Oley guitarist's concert rasies money for church

Yvonne Hartman put her guitar to work for a good cause Saturday.

The singer-songwriter from Oley Township played a benefit concert at Proximity Cafe in Pottstown to raise money for the Pottstown Bible Church on East High street.

Hartman performed a selection of original tunes, accompanied by her father, Gary Yerger, on bass, pastor Jack Applebach on drums and Larry Adam on keayboards.

Audience members left donations for the church. A total amount was not available.

Applebach said that with the cold winter, Pottstown Bible Church needs all the help it can get to pay for its heating oil. The church also operattes a food pantry and provides a free community meal that serves up to 100 people every Sunday.
