Bands Rock for the Cure in Downtown Jackson
Free concert dowtown to raise money for cancer research
JACKSON, Tenn.– Saturday a local girl band took the stage to help put on the second annual rock for the cure at the amp downtown.
The three USJ students, making up The Surreals, say they wanted to bring the concert back to Downtown Jackson.
There were five local bands who performed Saturday and concert goers also took part in a silent auction.
The annual concert is a fundraiser for the Jackson branch of the American Cancer Society.
“It’s a very relatable cause,” said Raley Koerner of the Surreals. “Everybody can relate to cancer because everybody knows someone who’s been affected by cancer, if not themselves. So it’s easy to reach out to the community when it’s very relatable.”
Last year Rock the Cure raised $2,500 and hope the double that donation this year.
Sunday afternoon the American Cancer Society heads to Antonia’s Paw Spa for its bark for life event.
