MOSES LAKE — Singer Michael Grimm will perform during a benefit dinner April 13 for the Grant County Homeless Task Force. “The Way Back Home” is scheduled for 6 p.m. at The Links at Moses Pointe, 4524 NE Westshore Dr.

The dinner, Grimm’s performance and the auction are in partnership with Equilus Capital Partners and the Columbia Basin Foundation. Proceeds will go to pay expenses of running the task force’s warming shelter for next winter, 2019-20.

In addition, task force members are hoping to “raise awareness of the Northwest’s affordable housing crisis and its role in affecting financially at-risk families and individuals,” according to information from the task force.

Grimm is best known as the winner of the 2010 season of “America’s Got Talent.” He has released two albums and worked with a number of pop stars, as well as touring nationally and internationally.

Grimm has personal experience with losing a home. He was raised in Waveland. Louisiana, which was extensively damaged when Hurricane Katrina came ashore in 2005. The house where he had been raised by his grandparents was destroyed. He used part of his prize from “America’s Got Talent” to help them build a new house.

The warming center opened in December for its fourth winter, and is open seven days per week. Homeless people can get a meal and get out of the cold and snowy weather.

The warming center requires about $17,000 per month to stay in operation, said director Sheila Chilson in an earlier interview, for rent, utilities and staff.

Tickets for the dinner are $75 per person, and include dinner and dessert, along with Grimm’s concert and the auction. They are available at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4070651.
