‘Show the Love’ Concert Benefits Oklahoma Tornado Victims

Posted: Updated:

People in Charlottesville are coming together to support the victims in Moore, Oklahoma. The "Show the Love" concert Friday night hopes to raise money for those devastated by the Oklahoma tornadoes. 

The Jefferson Theater and local band Love Canon paired up to host the benefit concert. A portion of the ticket sales and donations throughout the month of June will be donated to the United Way of Central Oklahoma. 

"A lot of times with disasters people forget there's a news cycle and they're out of the news but these people are still suffering. It's a long process to rebuild," said Jesse Harper, a member of Love Canon. 

Organizers are expecting close to 700 people at the concert, which will run until after midnight. 

Tickets are still available at the door.
