Arizona Singers Raise their Voices to Raise Funds for Singers Nation-Wide

Arizona folk singers gather to help singers across the nation. On Saturday, February 26, 2011, Patricia Silverberg, Mary Godfrey, Joe Bethancourt, Terry and Diane McCabe, and duo Jess Hawk Oakenstar and Kate deLaPointe (otherwise known as Wayward Maggie) take part in a benefit show for Society of Singers (SOS)—a non-profit dedicated to assisting professional singers across the country and across all genres. This wonderful life saving organization is struggling to keep its doors open and struggling to provide services such as rental and medical assistance to those in grave need.

Patricia Silverberg, the benefit organizer states, “Society of Singers was there for me when it seemed the whole world turned its back. Even with two Master’s degrees, I was out of work for a year. SOS not only provided rental assistance, but also lots of personalized attention. I wasn’t a faceless, nameless welfare case. It is time to pay it forward and help them continue to help others.”

The benefit takes place Saturday, February 26, 2011 at Fiddler's Dream, 1702 E. Glendale Ave, Phoenix. Doors open at 7 PM. Suggested donation is $10. The benefit features an autographed CD raffle, including those CDs donated by famous folk singers such as Natalie Merchant, The Indigo Girls, Lucinda Williams, Janis Ian, and Holly Near.
