CW Henry Elementary School in Mount Airy was recently burglarized and computers, iPads and music room equipment were stolen — including iPads that are used by the children in the school’s Autistic Support Program.
In an effort to raise funds for the replacement items, Paula Hanson, a parent of a CW Henry first-grader and an audio engineer, organized a fund raising concert along with her husband, Ringo. They have joined forces with the school, other parents and local musicians for the benefit concert which will be held at World Cafe Life on Saturday, May 24 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
According to The Key, City Rain, an electro pop duo consisting of Ben Runyan and Scott Cumpstone, will be performing at the concert. CW Henry music teacher Nikki Trisdorfer may be joining them as well as performing a set of her own. Girls from the CW Henry’s Upper School Choir are supposedly being incorporated into the concert too. Rob, of Revolution, I Love You, is scheduled to play an acoustic set. Other bands may perform as well.
Tickets to the benefit concert can be purchased here.
