Concert Across America to End Gun Violence

Sunday, September 24, 2017

Wire, 6815 Roosevelt Road, Berwyn, IL

Time: Starts at 12pm

In Chicago, we  will be holding our Concert Across America at Wire in Berwyn, Illinois.  www.wireismusic.com   Beginning at 12:00 p.m., the show will feature performances by The Huey Gang, Fernando Jones, Marcus Alexander, Bitters, The School of Rock Oak Park, Mani Jurdan, The Velvet Jimis, Ifficial Reggae Movement, and Isaiah Makar and more.   We are expecting participation from local politicians and activists, and frank conversation about the problem of gun violence in our community.  We expect a sold-out crowd (450) and the event will be linked to others that evening through social media, accessing a combined social media network of our non-profit partners expected to exceed 500,000.  We have set a goal of raising $20,000, and net proceeds from the show will benefit Build Chicago an Institution working on the front lines of the efforts to stop the violence in the Austin neighborhood and Greater Chicagoland communities.

We are extremely excited about the myriad of talent and the impact of this year’s concert.  Accordingly, we need sponsorship support.
