Love the song “Born to be Wild”? Love preserving the wild? If you answered yes to both, then 4th & B has a show for.
“Born to be Wild” singer Steppenwolf and John Kay will be holding an orangutan benefit concert on May 7. Proceeds from ticket sales and a silent auction before the show (at 7 p.m.) will go toward creating a sanctuary for orangutans that are being released back into the wild.
Not only is this a rare opportunity to catch the singers performing, you also get to contribute to a great cause. Tickets cost $40-$60. Get your tickets here
