Preview of Night Vision concert to be at museum
Philanthropist Victoria Hearst on Thursday will preview her fourth Night Vision Christian music concert in a presentation at the Museum of the West.
Hearst, the granddaughter of William Randolph Hearst, and Praise Him Ministries started the Night Vision concert three years ago in Ridgway.
The concert outgrew the fairgrounds in Ridgway and moved last year to Olathe, where it drew more than 12,000 people.
Hearst will introduce Night Vision in hopes of finding additional sponsors for the event, which will take place July 3-4 in Corn Park in Olathe.
In previous Night Vision events, “a lot of people came to the Lord,” Hearst said. ”We want to show people, especially kids and teens that you can be Christian, that Jesus is cool, without getting into things that are destructive.”
The event is named after a Bible verse, 1 Peter 2:9: “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”
Additional sponsors can help ease the burden on Praise Him Ministries, but the preview is not a fundraising event, Hearst said.
Anyone interested in participating can contact the ministry later, she said.
Additional participation in the event, for which admission is free, will allow Praise Him Ministries to spend money elsewhere, she said.
Individuals interested in seeing the preview can contact Miffie Blozvich of the museum at 255-4546.
