About Strike a Chord Concerts for Charity
Strike a Chord Concerts for Charity is an ongoing initiative to support nonprofit organizations by raising money and awareness through concerts supported by Boston-area musicians. More than $12,500 has been raised through eight concerts in two years for: The Gulf 2 Fund, based in Holliston, which sends weekly care packages to local troops serving in Afghanistan and Iraq, School on Wheels of Massachusetts (www.sowma.org), which provides educational advocacy and resources to children experiencing homelessness, and The Home for Little Wanderers, the oldest child and family service agency in the nation. Concerts have been held at Boston area venues, including the legendary Club Passim.
The next Strike a Chord Concert is planned for Saturday, October 24, from 4 to 7 p.m., at Stonehill College, to benefit School on Wheels and help them celebrate their five-year anniversary. Another fundraiser is being planned for 2010 to raise money for breast cancer research. More than 30 musicians from Greater Boston have donated their time, talents, and resources in helping to make the concerts successful. Strike a Chord Concerts for Charity was created by Holliston musician Ruthann Baler in 2007. For more information, visit www.myspace.com/strikeachordmusicians or firstname.lastname@example.org.
