WKRK, Cleveland and Louisville Public Media Fundraise for Haitian Relief
CBS station WKRK(FM) in Cleveland will host a benefit concert for Haiti titled "Radio 92.3 Bands Together." The show will take place Saturday, Feb. 6 at The Factory. The first band takes the stage at 6 p.m.
Several artists are donating performance time, including Chuck Mosley, Leah Lou, Leo, Random Stereo and The Suede Brothers.
Proceeds from the $5 admission price will be donated to the American Red Cross Haiti Relief Efforts. The benefit concert also involves support of Ante Up Audio, Scene Magazine, Metromix Cleveland, City Wide Protection Services and Tyler Village.
Separately, Louisville Public Media has joined the “Stand with Haiti” campaign. The three FM stations of Louisville Public Media — WFPL, WUOL and WFPK — began fundraising on behalf of Partners in Health, which serves the health needs of Haiti’s poor.
On Jan. 31, WFPK will solicit donations via the Web or by phone. The day will culminate with a broadcast performance by The Dick Sisto-Harry Pickens Duo in the LPM Performance Studio. The public can attend for a minimum donation at the door.
The stations are accepting donations for Partners in Health via their Web sites.
