TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - For the past 9 years, the "Live from Graff" concert has been held at Harrison High School. It's a benefit concert featuring student musicians.
Every year, the school chooses to help several organizations and people in need.
This year, cans of food collected at the door will be donated to Food Finders Food Bank. Additionally, money collected as admission will be used to help a local family purchase a van equipped with a wheelchair lift for their special needs child. Proceeds from glow necklaces sold at the event will go to Natalie's Second Chance Animal Shelter.
The concert is Friday at the Graff Auditorium in Harrison High School. The show will begin at 7 p.m. Admission is $8 and a can of food.
If you'd like to make a further donation, you can make out a check to "Live from Graff" and send it to Harrison High School. The school's address is 5701 N. County Road 50 West, West Lafayette, Ind.
Check out the video to see Harrison teachers and event organizers Jill Mansilla and Craig Smiley talk about the event when they stopped by News 18 Daybreak.
Donations are being accepted to help around 300 seniors receive a holiday gift.
Donations are needed for Food Finders Food Bank to aim at matching a grant that would match funds up to $20,000.
The economy has had its ups and downs in the past, but there is promising news for West Central Indiana in 2014. Experts are predicting economic growth next year.
