Florida Baptist holds benefit concert for fallen officers

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A Baton Rouge congregation rocked out to show their support for our men and women in blue.

The pastor of Florida Boulevard Baptist Church, Jason Bland, says when he heard about last Sunday's tragic ambush shooting of three law enforcement officers, he transformed a concert event into a benefit for the families who lost loved ones.

“I couldn't tell you the number of people that called me asking, ‘What can we do?’ And watch the news and heard the call for prayer. So we've had a prayer vigil every day this week at noon,” said Bland.

Pastor Bland says in addition to support through prayer, everything raised from the benefit should go directly to law enforcement.
