The SLSO announced this afternoon that it will be donating a percentage of its ticket proceeds from the next two weekends to the American Red Cross. From a press release:
The SLSO will donate to the American Red Cross five percent of single ticket revenues from orchestral series concerts over the next two weekends. Also, Red Cross envelopes will be available at these concerts so people may make personal donations.
The concerts included in this promotion are below. This endeavor comes on the heels of the local benefits being organized already, a list being compiled right here.
