A concert benefiting Heart to Heart International’s Disaster Preparedness Response Fund will be held Monday night in the Kansas City Power Light District.
Proceeds from the Rock for Relief concert will go to help Heart to Heart deliver aid to Moore, Okla., and prepare for future disasters.
The seven bands performing are The Beautiful Bodies, Six Percent, Antennas Up, Not a Planet, She’s a Keeper, Ghost Town Heart and Cover Me Badd.
The KC Live venue opens at 6 p.m. and performances will be on the KC Live Stage in the downtown Kansas City entertainment district.
Tickets are available at the door for a $10 donation. For a $20 donation, attendees get a VIP pass that includes two drink tickets and access to a VIP lounge area. The first 75 VIP entrants receive a T-shirt.
The concert is being presented by MidCoast Cares, which was created to help raise funds for Joplin tornado victims in 2011.
“The music community is a really close-knit,” said Sondra Freeman, director of promotions for Midwest Music Foundation and owner of Sistrum Enterprises. “We couldn’t imagine what it would be like if those tornadoes came through 816 (area code).”
The Joplin benefit raised more than $10,000, so organizers hope to raise at least that much on Monday night.
There’s also a silent auction and raffle items. For more details on the concert, silent auction and raffle items, visit theRock for Relief Facebook Event page
“This is something we can do,” Freeman said, “so this is something we need to do.”
