Rockin' for a good cause

May 17, 2008

Albany--On Friday night in Albany five bands, and hundreds of young people turned out to have a Rockin' good time.

Attendees paid seven dollars to watch the local bands and one from as far as Tallahassee.

One dollar of the entry fee will go to help in the fight against Juvenile diabetes.

Two local production companies and San Jose Mexican Restaurant made the event possible.

Organizers say concerts like this is a win-win for everyone, giving people something to do in the city... and supporting a good cause.

"This one is going to go to juvenile diabetes, we've got some coming up, one will go to the American Heart Association, and one is going to go to brest cancer. Pretty much we want to promote juvenile diabetes, because we want to promote things that affect everyone," said Kelsey Harrold, Genocide City Productions.

More concerts like this one are planned for the future. On each night organizers will select a different cause to support.
