Boston-area Musicians to Inspire Hope
Charity Concert at Club Passim will benefit The Home for Little Wanderers
BOSTON, MA — Boston-area musicians will participate in a benefit concert at Club Passim, 47 Palmer Street in Cambridge, Sunday, May 31, 7 p.m. to raise money for The Home for Little Wanderers, the nation’s oldest child and family service agency. The concert is being organized by Strike a Chord Concerts for Charity, which has raised more than $12,000 through seven concerts in two years for Boston-area area non-profits. Club Passim will donate proceeds from the event to The Home. Tickets will be $13/$15 and can be purchased by calling 617-492-7679.
"In the current economic climate, support from groups like Strike a Chord Concerts for Charity is valued more than ever," said Lisa Rowan-Gillis, Vice President of Development and Public Relations. "Money raised from this concert will provide critical support and services to thousands of children at risk and their families in The Home’s programs across Eastern Massachusetts. We are pleased that Strike a Chord has chosen The Home for Little Wanderers this year and thank them for their support."
