‘Heaven is for Real Live’ to raise funds for homeless

Email News Alerts

A dozen or so local businesspeople think the widely publicized story of a boy’s glimpse of heaven deserves an even bigger audience.


They’ve secured a performance of “Heaven is for Real: LIVE” at the Fargodome in July and want to raise money for the area’s growing homeless population in the process.

The boy’s experience is told in the 2010 best-selling book “Heaven is for Real” and movie of the same name, released nationwide by Sony Pictures just before Easter weekend.
