Concert to benefit local Hurricane Katrina victims
A concert to benefit the Hurricane Katrina evacuees living in Rhode Islandwill be held on Sunday, Feb. 19. All proceeds raised at the event will be distributed to the evacuees through the East Bay Community Action Program, to be used for moving costs, rental payments, and even travel assistance for those who choose to return to the Gulf Coast.
The concert will take place at Billy Goode’s, 23 Marlborough St. in Newport. The fund-raiser will begin at 4 p.m. and continue until 10 p.m. Billy Goode’s will provide a buffet, and several local bands will be performing, including the Ravers, Chiva Bus, Chelley, Bill & Dylan, and Jamestowner Ed McGuirl. Tickets will cost $10 at the door.
