Watch the Corona-Aid Online Concert Featuring Berklee Musicians
More than $22,000 of a $25,000 Goal Raised for CAC!
The Sandy Springs and Dunwoody communities are coming together in a variety of ways to support their neighbors hit hardest by the coronavirus pandemic. One such effort was from a group of talented music students who performed Corona-Aid on Sunday April 5, a live online music event to benefit CAC’s efforts to assist local families in need. The live music fundraiser has raised more than $22,000 in donations toward a $25,000 goal. You can still contribute to the Corona-Aid Relief Fund!
Eric Abel, a Georgia Tech student from Sandy Springs who was taking time off to study at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, wanted to do something to help while he finishes his semester online. He and 6 musician friends from Berklee and GA Tech decided to play their music for a cause.
Eric, with the help of his father, began distributing news of Corona-Aid to their contacts near and far, including in the Atlanta area, the GA Tech and Berklee communities. The concert was streamed on Facebook Live.
“We wanted to do something, to raise money and help people, and determined that CAC is the best beneficiary to get money directly to families in need,” said Kevin Abel, Eric’s father.
The concert was streamed on Facebook Live and was recorded.
