Staci Frenes shares the evening with Joni Eareckson-Tada at a Joni and Friends benefit at the Blackhawk Country Club in San Ramon, CA on March 16th, 2012.
“I remember reading about Joni Eareckson Tada’s amazing story in junior high and being profoundly moved by it. Tonight I’m meeting her for the first time, doing music for a Joni and Friends benefit event. Seems surreal! She’s one of my modern-day heroes!”
The event raised money for several projects benefiting the disabled community around the world–a mission which Joni and Friends has been faithful to for over 25 years.
