On March 5th, 2010 Laura Chukanov (Miss Utah USA 2009) hosted a benefit concert organized by a Utah non-profit organization called One Heart Bulgaria. The concert included four local performers: Critter, Sam Payne, Mindy Gledhill, and Peter Breinholt.

Laura introduced the musical guests, spoke of her Bulgarian heritage, and encouraged the audience to get involved with One Heart Bulgaria. Both Mindy Geldhill and Sam Payne travelled to Bulgaria last year in order to perform musical concerts for Bulgarian orphans. They expressed that this trip was a life changing experience for them and showed a slide show of pictures documenting their trip and new friends in Bulgaria. The purpose of this concert was to honor the orphans in Bulgaria and to introduce people to how they can help. It was a beautiful night with extraordinary performances in the honor of the orphaned children of Bulgaria. Money for the orphans was raised through ticket sales, t-shirts that said “I have Bulgarian Friends” – written in Bulgarian and Bulgarian souvenir sales.
