Bluesfest to Benefit Plymouth Crossroads
Some of the coolest and heppest blues bands in Buffalo come together to raise funds to fight teenage homelessness and support Plymouth Crossroads.
WBFO Blues Legend and 97 Rock Icon Anita West will play host to four rocking blues groups. Scheduled to play are The Rod Horning Project at 2:00, Dave Viterna Group at 3:15, Randle and the Late Night Scandals at 4:30, and the Jony James Band at 6:00 p.m. Serenity Sound will provide the sound stage and lighting. A basket raffle will be held, featuring a guitar from the Guitar Factory. Food and beverages will be available for sale.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Plymouth Crossroads in Lancaster. Plymouth Crossroads is a 501(c)(3) transitional housing shelter which provides a safe place to call home for abused, runaway and homeless young men ages 16-20. The program is designed to not only provide shelter for these young men, but to also help them get enrolled in school or a GED program and find local employment. Plymouth also provides extensive case management and group meetings to teach important life skills that are essential to the residents’ success in society. Since its opening in 2011 it has helped 80 boys to not fall under the statistic of becoming homeless.
Presale tickets are available for $12 and may be purchased online at www.plymouthcrossroads.org or by calling 716-393-3906. Tickets at the door will be $15. Sponsorship opportunities are available for local businesses. Donations are also requested for the basket raffle.
