An upcoming fundraiser will raise money to support Christian Medical College Hospitals in India.

Linnea Good, David Jonsson and their children Patrick, Nicole and Isaac Jonsson-Good will return to the two hospitals later this year. They will perform Christian music to support the health care professionals and students at the colleges.

The family had first visited the hospitals in 2013.

Proceeds from the fundraising dinner will assist the family as they return.

Money above the travel costs will go towards replacing an old sound system at the hospital in Vellore in Tamil Nadu.

The fundraising dinner will be held at Summerland United Church on Friday, July 3, beginning at 6 p.m.

Donovan Tildesley, a four-time paralympic swimmer, will be the guest speaker.

In addition, Nathan, Kristin, Josh and Tiana Kirkegaard of Ladner will join the Jonsson-Good family in music making.

The Kierkegaard family will join the Jonsson-Good family in India.
