Band battle benefits Lily Pad

By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  Charity Brock, an 18-year old Freshman at Darton, is living up to her name. She and her family became familiar with the Lily Pad, a non-profit rape and abuse center about a year ago.

She says the statistics that one our of four women and one out of six men will be sexually assaulted by the time they reach her age are staggering.

That's why she's organized a Battle of the Bands fundraiser Saturday to help the organization.

"The statistics lie within my peers and I feel that educating my peers on the reality that is abuse, and sexual abuse is very prominent, and I think by educating my peers on it can be effective in our community," said Charity Brock.

"As an 18-year-old, she's gotten involved in a charity, gotten involved in the community and I think it's real important for young people and young professionals to get involved in something they're passionate about," said Lily Pad Development Director Caitlyn Cooper.

Battle of the bands takes place tomorrow at the State Theater on Pine Avenue in Albany.

The music is head banging---  with Confined to the Shadows and Legends Never Die being two of the performers. The others are:

  • Elanora from
  • After Me
  • The Flood
  • Beware the Neverending

But the lyrics are clean. No alcohol or crude language will be allowed. Tickets are available at the door for $10 each.
