A Charlottesville nonprofit is hosting a benefit concert Saturday night to help our neighbors to the west. Catalyst Productions is raising money to send relief to West Virginians who are still without water after the contamination disaster.
The Operation Freeflow Benefit Concert will take place at the Jefferson Theater in Charlottesville at 6:30 p.m. It's the group's latest effort in a campaign that began two weeks ago with only a handful of people.
"Now we've got a great opportunity for everybody to come and dance together, get mobile, and show the world that even just a small town together can start leveling the playing field a little bit against things that can't be controlled," said Ian Babcock, Catalyst executive director.
Catalyst is partnering with several musicians and grocers, like Kroger and Whole Foods, for the event. Tickets are $15.
