Thanks to the music, $7,000 raised for tsunami victims

On Jan. 30, a couple hundred of us had the opportunity to participate in a very special event.It was an evening of remembering those who lost their lives last December in one of the worst natural disasters of our lifetime and also an evening of coming together as a community to help the survivors.With the volunteer participation of some of the very best and well-known musicians of our community performing that evening, and with the help of so many local businesses and generous individuals, the Tsunami Benefit Concert held at the Silverthorne Pavilion raised more than $7,000 in just a few hours.This evening would not have been possible had it not been for a very hard working and willing individual, Tommy Shreve, who not only shared impeccable guitar and vocals, but also spent countless hours organizing and presenting this most excellent venue. With the help of his fellow musicians, Moe Dixon, Keith Synnestvedt, Nancy Cook, Sal Mancini, Arnie J. Green, Leon Littlebird, Jimmy Sferes and the Tommy Shreve Band, a night of beautiful music will long be remembered by all attending.
