To raise monetary help and awareness for charities who need community support, Bands of 30A will host a fundraising concert from 12-5 p.m. Dec. 17 at the Seaside Amphitheater. All proceeds will be donated to Food For Thought Outreach Inc.

“After the amazing response from the Storm Relief Concert in September, we wanted to make an ongoing impact in our community by using the gift of music to benefit deserving charities,” said event organizer Casey Kearney. “Various bands that play regularly on 30A will be hosting family-friendly concerts at different venues that will raise awareness and support for many causes.”

The musical lineup of local and regional bands will begin performing at the top of each hour beginning at 12 p.m. with the Graytones, followed by Casey Kearney, Jacob Mohr, Will Thompson, and the Luke Langford Band.

In addition to the live musical performances, Santa will be coming in on the official 30A mascot, the Land Rover “Truman,” ready to take photos. Great Southern Café will also be on site offering half price drinks available to all those who purchase an official Bands of 30A cup from the donation table.

The event is free to attend, but concert goers are asked to make a $10 donation for full day access to the concerts.
