The Baby Boomers Band will perform a benefit concert at 7 p.m. March 8 at May Memorial Unitarian Church in Syracuse to raise awareness and funds for the American Red Cross of Central New York.
The seven-member band performs popular Rock and Roll songs from the 60s, 70s and 80s by artists such as the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Billy Joel, Eagles, Simon & Garfunkel, Mamas & Papas, Supertramp and other famous acts. The band features two male and two female vocalists, creating a four-part harmony that gives the band its signature sound.
Tickets are $15 and include food and drinks. To reserve a seat, call 315-234-2225, email email@example.com, or mail a check payable to the American Red Cross of Central New York to the Red Cross office at 344 W. Genesee St., Syracuse, 13202.
All proceeds from the concert benefit the American Red Cross mission of alleviating human suffering. Working families in Central New York require almost daily emergency assistance because of home fires and other disasters. In the last year, the Red Cross provided more than $180,000 to 803 people from 283 families impacted by fires and floods in Onondaga, Cayuga, Cortland, Madison and Oswego counties.
The concert will help commemorate national "March is Red Cross Month,” which is celebrating the 70th anniversary since it was first declared by President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1934. The American Red Cross, founded in 1881, is a non-profit organization that relies solely on fundraising events and the generosity of donors because it does not receive government funding.
The Baby Boomers Band, which has a history of performing benefit concerts to aid non-profit organizations, selected the Red Cross this year to raise funds and awareness of Red Cross programs and services. In addition to disaster relief and blood services, the Red Cross provides health and safety training, assistance to military families, and international services.
