A Tsunami Relief Concert will be held on February 8 in Price City Civic Center to help raise funds for victims of the recent Asian Tsunami. The event will begin at 6 p.m. with an open house highlighting local community efforts to aid the tsunami survivors. At 7 p.m. the program will begin with various local performing groups including choirs from Sally Mauro Elementary, Castle Heights Elementary, Creekview Elementary, Wellington Elementary, Mont Harmon Jr. High, Carbon High School, and Miss Carbon County, Kimberly Jenks.
Price City Mayor Joe Piccolo will be the Master of Ceremonies and representatives from the American Red Cross and Unicef, an organization that solely helps children, will be present to accept donations. Concessions and t-shirts will be sold, with all proceeds going to aid relief efforts and helping to purchase school supplies for tsunami victims. Also those in attendance will have the option to help assemble hygiene kits which will be sent to the countries most affected by the tsunami. An entrance fee will not be charged, but attendees are encouraged to donate $1.
