“Rock for Relief” to Benefit Disaster Fund; Moore, Oklahoma

Rock for Relief art

Come Monday, June 3rd, the Power & Light District in downtown Kansas City, Missouri is going to Rock for Relief!

Seven bands are coming together to put on a benefit concert to raise money for Heart to Heart International’s Disaster Relief Fund, in order to fund our on-going relief efforts in Moore, Oklahoma and to prepare to respond to future disasters.

The benefit is the brainchild of a group called MidCoast Cares.  “MidCoast Cares was created by an army of do-gooders to help with relief for Joplin tornado victims in 2011,” said Sondra Freeman, director of promotions for Midwest Music Foundation and owner at Sistrum Enterprises. “The benefit for Moore happens exactly two years and two days after the Joplin benefit took place at Crosstown Station, at which we raised more than $10,000 for Heart to Heart International. We hope to raise that, and much more, at this year’s event.”

We’re very excited about this concert!  Here’s more info, and the bands that will play Monday night…

Bands:
The Beautiful Bodies
Six Percent
Antennas Up
Not a Planet
She’s a Keeper
Cover Me Badd

Doors open at 6pm

The Experience in Photos

A month and a half ago Heart to Heart celebrated its 20th Anniversary in awesome fashion with “The Experience”.
Two days later we mobilized to respond to Hurricane Sandy, and as always the case around here, we’ve been very busy with that and everything else that goes on at HHI.
The point? The photos from that wonderful night in late October haven’t been released.  Until now…

We’ve uploaded the best photos – 118 pics! – from The Experience onto HHI’s Flickr page.  Meaning you can view the photos in a slideshow (best viewed with high-speed connection), or scan through them individually.  You can also download the photos that you like in varying sizes.

For those who attended the night, this will take you back and refresh your memories.  For those who couldn’t make it, these photos will give you a glimpse of the evening… a night of Experience, Engagement & Entertainment. And great food!
