FFR_benefitA benefit concert is being held at Dalhousie University on Sunday, April 11 at Potter Hall (across the street  from the Rebecca Cohn in the Kenneth Rowe Management Building). Admission is $20.

The benefit is being put on by Friends for Refugees (FFR). FFR is looking for your help to privately sponsor a refugee family. The family – father, mother and two young children – are currently located at a Syrian refugee camp near the Iraqi boarder. FFR needs to raise enough money to bring the family to Halifax and to support them during their first year in Canada. Friends For Refugees will also need help with settlement once the family arrives this winter.You can find out more about the group by visiting their site.

The concert is being put on in order to raise funds for the families. Headliners include Stephen Fearing, Don Ross, Jeff Torbert and Scott Macmillan. You can download the poster for further information.
