WINFIELD — Stars Go Dim, a Christian pop band from Tulsa, Oklahoma, will be featured at the Donna DeMint Memorial Cancer Benefit Concert on June 3.
The event will begin at 7 p.m. at the Richardson Performing Arts Center in Southwestern College’s Christy Administration Building. Tickets are $15.

High school students at the camp will perform with other Christian bands, artists, and high school and college worship leaders.
Camp director Martin Rude said he is looking forward to having Stars Go Dim on campus.
“We are so looking forward to the musical professionalism and the passionate message of the power of love that Chris and the band will bring to our Donna DeMint memorial fundraiser concert,” Rude said. “The whole band is also graciously spending the day mentoring youth at our Amp It Up! praise band camp.”

About Stars Go Dim
Since 2007, Stars Go Dim members have been determined to use their musical gifts for one purpose: letting people know about God’s relentless love for them.
“We are all part of a love story,” said lead singer Chris Cleveland, “a story of God’s love for his people and His love for each one of us. Thinking about society and the world today, we are divided on so many things — politics, race and religion. We have opinions on everything and everyone. We are told who to be, what to think, how to feel, even what our bodies should look like.”
Cleveland added that is not the plan God had for this world.
“He loved us so much that He sent His son to live, die, and physically rise and walk out of a grave,” Cleveland said. “And He gives us that same promise, so that we can join this love story that God has been telling since the beginning. This all starts with knowing just how much our heavenly Father loves us.”
