“Robert was passionate about reaching out and helping others. This concert is a way to bring Robert’s peers – local students and young professionals – together, to get everyone more involved in the community,” explained Robert Vasen Foundation Advisory Board President, Tony Rona. “The goal is to act as a liaison between the various organizations we already support and this younger demographic to set up engaging and rewarding volunteer opportunities, making it fun and effortless for local 20 and 30-something’s to give back like Robert did.”
The concert lineup features three local bands, Sons of Huns, Radiation City and Slow Dance, with doors opening at 8 p.m. on April 28. Tickets are available for presale at $10 on Nectar’s web calendar, or $15 at the door. Upcoming peer volunteer opportunities presented by the Robert Vasen Foundation will be publicized shortly in addition to being announced at the event.
