We may be almost two months out from Hurricane Florence’s wrath, but for so many the devastation is still present. That’s why Myrtle Beach is reaching out to its neighbors with some relief in the form of a benefit concert to be held Sunday, Nov. 11th at the Myrtle Beach Pelicans Field.
The announcement was made on the Gator 107.9 country music radio show, who will be a partner in the production of the concert. Tickets are on sale now at Ticketreturn.com and via Myrtle Beach Pelicans. Prices range from $50-$200. All proceeds will stay in the area, going to the Area Recovery Council through Waccamaw Community Foundation, as well as the Eastern SC Chapter of the American Red Cross.
According to a Facebook post from Mayor Brenda Bethune, who has been an integral partner in this undertaking, the concert will be a unique and incredible experience. Artists will perform together for the first time, creating mashups with a party-down-south attitude. These artists, who are all performing for free, include:
Love and Theft
Davisson Brothers Band
The Swon Brothers
Local organizations such as Visit Myrtle Beach, City of Myrtle Beach, Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce, WPDE ABC15, Gator 107.9, Myrtle Beach Pelicans, Ticket Return and many more have been working non-stop for several weeks to make this amazing event a reality. The teamwork, love and supper that has made this benefit possible will contribute to disaster relief efforts in the counties of Horry, Florence, Darlington, Marlboro, Dillon, and Marion.
Not only will the concert be an opportunity to come together as a community to help our neighbors impacted by Hurricane Florence, you will see some of your favorite artists performing like never before to do the same. The goal is to raise as much money as possible. In addition to attending, you can donate your time.
From lighting to staging, to artists, to location, volunteers are needed as the more that is contributed at little-to-no cost, the more money can be contributed the disaster relief. So many throughout the community have already donated their labor, services and resources. If you or anyone you know want to help, reach out by emailing MBHurricaneFlorenceConcert@gmail.com.
