A Hurricane Irma Relief Benefit features sister folk trio Joseph with guest Liza Anne on Monday, Oct. 2, at at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall, 1050 A1A North, Ponte Vedra Beach. Admission to the event is free but donations in the form of canned food items or monetary donations are a key goal for the evening.
Gates open at 7 p.m., concert starts at 8 p.m.
For those who can donate, the occasion represents a great opportunity to help local residents most severely affected by the Hurricane Irma. The hurricane brought ravaging winds and flooding that forced the displacement of thousands of people when it hit North Florida on Sept. 11. For many, the process of recovery represents a monumental task. Help is needed. Proceeds from the evening will benefit the Social Services Division of the St. Johns County Health and Human Services Department which provides social support and assistance to needy members of the community. Following the devastation of Hurricane Irma, the St. Johns County Social Services Division is in need of contributions (both monetary and/or food items) to restock community food pantries which were depleted as a result of the storm.
Attendees bringing non-perishable food items will be assisted and directed to appropriate collection containers which will be delivered the following day to the Social Services Division. Monetary donations will also be taken at the door.
The band behind the benefit concert is Joseph, a Portland, Oregon-based, sister trio. Their sound is rooted in the unique blend of siblings singing together, from Beach Boys to the Everly Brothers – or, more recently, First Aid Kit. With the release of “I’m Alone, No You’re Not,” thr group offers the mesmerizing, hypnotic sound of the trio known as Joseph – made up of sisters Allison, Meegan, and Natalie Closner.
