Queen Anne's Arts Council turns weekly concert into tornado benefit

The Queen Anne's County Arts Council is changing up its weekly summer concert Thursday night, asking for donations to help two victims of the tornado that ripped through Kent Island Monday.

Normally, the concerts raise $300 to $400 that goes toward supporting the council's art programs, said Allison Moffatt, office coordinator for the council. They hope to raise $500.

"It's not going to be a million dollar concert, but we couldn't very well pass the hat for ourselves at a moment like this," she said.

The council will partner with Kent Island Elks Post 2576 to get money directly to two members who lost their homes. No donation of goods or emergency supplies will be accepted. The arts council suggested contacted a local volunteer fire department for those donations.

To those of you trying to claim we are "milking this story" you are wrong. This is a benefit to raise money for those in need.

Salisbury News has ALWAYS been about "Paying It Forward" and giving back to our communities.

Good for you, Elks and partners! Godspeed!

The only "milkers" out there is the local news hounds looking for anything to report on without having to get out of the basement

All our best in your efforts! See you there!
