Pomarolli headlines Gordon Hospital’s Praise and Prayer concert

CALHOUN — Christian comedian Kerri Pomarolli is headlining Gordon Hospital’s 12th Annual Praise and Prayer event set for Thursday, May 9, at 7 p.m. at Calhoun’s GEM Theatre.

Pomarolli is an accomplished actress, published author and veteran of television with credits that include over 28 appearances on "The Tonight Show," Comedy Central, recurring roles on "Port Charles" and "The Young and the Restless" and the Lifetime Network.

She has been a popular guest on many TV shows on FOX, TBN, CBN, TLN, ABC, ABC Family Network, Daystar, CNN Headline News Showbiz Tonight, Hallmark Channel, (preshow host) GMA/Dove Awards and many others. Pomarolli and husband comedian Ron McGehee appeared on the Oxygen Network’s hit reality show "Tori and Dean: Inn Love," and starred and co-produced "I Love Kerri," which premiered on Sky Angel. Kerri starred in the hilariously funny comedy "Engaged" that also premiered on the Sky Angel network. Kerri is one of the many Christians in Hollywood interviewed in the groundbreaking documentary "Hollywood on Fire" where she talks about the past, present and future of faith in the entertainment industry.

“Once again we are excited to bring an exciting Christian performer to Calhoun and Gordon County,” says Pete Weber, president and CEO of Gordon Hospital. “Kerri is a Southern girl and bases some of her comedy on growing up here in the South. She is very entertaining and we think that attendees will have a great time.”

Tickets for the event are $8, and include a free ticket for a soda, candy bar or bag of popcorn at the GEM’s concession stand. “We really want this to be a great family fun night for everyone who attends. All proceeds from the show will go to benefit the hospital’s upcoming expansion,” says Weber. “This is one of the events that we look forward to each year. We get such a tremendous blessing from it and they just seem to get better and better. We hope that people will come and just enjoy a great Christian night.”

The GEM Theatre holds nearly 500 people. Tickets can be purchased at the Box Office. GEM Box Office hours are Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. and Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 3 to 6 p.m. All seats are reserved.

    Could this really be happening?
    Three-and-a-half years earlier their hearts had stirred when they first heard his call. Centuries of Greek and Roman brutality had deepened their desire for the promised Deliverer. Their desires for temporal deliverance had colored even their reading of the Scriptures, until they had convinced themselves that the Messiah’s primary mission would be to deliver them from Rome.

The author of our Bible (the Holy Spirit) responds with divine disgust and anger, “such isn’t so” (“God forbid” — Romans 6:15)!
