Blood:Water Tyler Event Brings Results

There will be 19 new water well in sub-Saharan Africa thanks to the generosity of east Texans.

More than $75,000 was raised last night at the Blood:Water|Tyler event last night at Bergfeld Park.

That's almost double the $40,000 goal, set to build ten wells.

A standing room only crowd came to hear Christian artist Sara Groves and author Donald Miller share the need for water and blood in Africa.
