The Emory & Henry College Appalachian Center for Community Service is sponsoring a benefit concert this Friday, September 7, 2007. The concert, billed as Playing for the Future, will take place on the lawn at the Emory Memorial Chapel at 6 PM.
The benefit features four bands ranging from bluegrass, to old-time and Americana.
The concert is free to the public with a requested donation of $10. All proceeds will go to three local nonprofits: Appalachian Sustainable Development, Ecumenical Faith in Action and Habitat for Humanity. The efforts of these organizations focus on two areas of public policy programming that correspond to the Appalachian Center’s priorities: hunger and homelessness, and the environment.
