This Saturday, Open Arms Community Church will be hosting “Rock for Haiti”, a benefit concert with proceeds going to support famine relief in Haiti. The show –which starts at 6:30 in the evening at the church- will feature several local acts. The lineup includes: Josh Hatcher (acoustic rock), Ariel Campbell (acoustic rock), No Room For Nelson (alternative rock), Panic Attack (hip-hop), Marshmellow Overcoat (rock), and Horizons Open Wide (rock/ska).

There will be a $5 cover charge, with funds going towards the Free Methodist Haitian Famine Relief Fund. The Famine Relief Fund has been a long-term presence in Haiti and is one of several branch organizations of Free Methodist World Missions, which has raised over $840,000 in post-earthquake relief funds (For more information, see www.helphaitiheal.org).

Local artists Julia Allen, Denise Drummond, and Jennifer MacNeill have donated artwork that will be raffled off throughout the evening. Jennifer’s photography has been featured on the UN website. Raffle tickets will be available starting at one dollar per ticket.

“We’re really excited about this show,” said Larry Petry, one of the benefit’s organizers. “We all saw the devastation with the earthquake in Haiti, and wanted to help. This is an opportunity for local artists and music lovers to have a great time at a show and make a world of difference for the people of Haiti. All of the artists are looking forward to using our talents to bring some hope and healing to Haiti.”

Anyone looking to make a donation, or for more for information can contact Josh Hatcher (814-331-1721, officejosh@gmail.com), Larry Petry (814-366-1912, Lawrence.Petry@gmail.com), or Open Arms Community church. Additional information can also be found on the “Rock for Haiti” facebook page.
