Working with local organizations and organizers, I’ll be donating a performance to raise money and spirits of those driven from their homes by the recent hurricanes in Lumberton NC. I have friends who had only been back in their homes for a few months before losing them to high water again, in two successive 500-year floods! I had a routed night free on the road and will be doing a benefit for them on Saturday night, February 16th.
Details are still be ironed out, but Jumbo Arts International and the local Robeson County Library are pairing up with other organizers in town to work out the logistics of the event and develop conduits to get the money raised into the right hands. They are doing what I cannot do. I will raise my voice on their behalf two days after Valentine’s.
Don’t let geography be a barrier to helping out. A donations/reservations page for the event is at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/scott-ainslie-valentines-weekend-flood-benefit-concert-tickets-53940040112?aff=ebdssbdestsearch
