HONDO — UvaldeRadio.net is hosting a Texas Country benefit concert on Sunday with ticket proceeds going to the Robb Elementary School Memorial Fund, according to a news release.
The aim is to help families affected by the deadly May 24 shooting which claimed the lives of 21 people – 19 teachers and two students.
“Graff 7A Ranch is honored to host this special Uvalde Strong benefit concert featuring several accomplished Texan artists,” said Laura Graff, owner of Graff 7A Ranch. “The citizens of Hondo and surrounding areas are praying for our neighbors in Uvalde as they go through this difficult time.”
The event features live music, food, drink and farming activities for the whole family.
15 singers will take the stage to support the Uvalde community and other fundraising headliners include Kin Faux and Bri Bagwell and The Banned, according to a press release.
“This concert is one of the ways our region can heal and help those who have been affected,” said Robert Miguel Rodriguez, owner and director of programs at UvaldeRadio.net.
“It was important to us to bring together artists who walked our streets, performed in our venues, shook hands with our people and experienced the uniqueness of our city. I am grateful that it has come together in this way so that we can continue to be there for our fellow Uvaldeans,” Rodriquez said.
The concert takes place today from 12 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Tickets are still on sale for general admission.
