The Salvation Army Benefit Concert - Making Change Together
The Salvation Army Fundraising Concert is your opportunity to lend a willing hand to the needy.
The Astronomical Events International is organizing the fundraising concert for the Salvation Army Organization, scheduled for May, 30. The concert will be held at Chicago City center, with the British rock band Beets headlining it.
The list of needed donation items includes food and aid, furniture, clothes and medicines, personal care items and other material contributions.
"Our organization has been helping people in need and distress for the past 150 years. All along, our main objective has been to help people in need, take care about people of advanced years, support homeless persons and relieve their distress," said Commissioner David Jeffrey, National Commander of the Salvation Army. "Unfortunately, we are not able to help all of these people solely by our own efforts. Therefore, we are holding such concerts at times to collect donations and raise funds to support the activities of the Salvation Army. With all our hearts, we invite the Chicago citizens to become a part of an amazing event. Only holding together and united we can change this world."
"As the executive director of the Wayne Foundation, I am personally committed to spreading awareness of deep and pressing problems of our society," said Bruce Wayne. "The Wayne Foundation is to be the presenting sponsor for the fundraising concert as we put our faith in the Salvation Army and truly believe that its activities will change the world for the better".
"I have never been involved in the event like this and I am very honored to be a part of this momentous event," said producer and host of TV shows Ryan Seacrest. "I am deeply concerned with the grave problems of our community and I hope that I could be really helpful in making this concert a remarkable and honorable event".
