A free benefit concert this Saturday (April 14) at the Levitt Pavilion will help raise funds for those who suffered damages and losses because of the tornados that touched down in Arlington and the surrounding area last week. The concert is free, but cash donations will be collected to be dispersed through the local Salvation Army for those in need.

The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. with the Salvation Army Band. Betty Buckley, Tony Award-winning actress and recording artist will perform, followed by Melissa Lawson, Arlington country music artist who won NBC’s Nashville Star.

No clothing or food will be collected. Officials at the Salvation Army say that they have more than enough of those items. Cash donations will be collected and used for a variety of needs for those who suffered damages and losses who were not insured or underinsured.

Those attending the concert should bring lawn chairs and blankets to use on the lawn. Picnics and coolers are welcome, but no glass containers.

The Levitt Pavilion is located at 100 W. Abram St. in Arlington. Free parking is available all around the pavilion. Directions to the Levitt and a parking map are available on their website, www.levittpavilionarlington.org.
