San Diego, turn all those free-flowing positive vibes into some real, tangible good: On Saturday, Aug. 25, the Southern Caregiver Resource Center (SCRC) is partnering with House of Blues San Diego to present a charity concert featuring some of San Diego's brightest musical acts.
Currently celebrating 31 years of service as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, SCRC provides families and communities free caregiver services and support in mastering the "challenges of caring for frail older adults and adults with chronic and disabling conditions including Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, Huntington's disease, stroke, traumatic brain impairment and other related disorders."
The Aug. 25 show aims to raise awareness and funds for San Diego families in need of caregiving services. And that need is dire, indeed. Just one brief example: Recent studies show that Alzheimer's disease is expected to become a global epidemic (if it isn't considered one already) and will rise by at least 14 percent in all 50 U.S. states by 2025. It's beyond time to get involved.
And now you have the perfect opportunity: Join SCRC for the Sounds of Summer Benefit Concert, which promises to be an amazing night of live music featuring performances by San Diego Music Award-winning reggae group Hirie and singer-songwriter Tolan Shaw, Americana rock band the Sleepwalkers and reggae-pop artist Lea Love. Watch SCRC's promotional video for the concert here for more information.
The show is all ages and starts at 7 p.m., with tickets ranging between $50 (for general admission) to $250 (for a meet-and-greet experience). They're available for purchase online here.
House of Blues San Diego is located at 1055 Fifth Ave.
