When the Southborough Library’s downstairs and Children’s Room was flooded in September, the community asked how it could help. Some of those voices led to a Benefit Concert to be held next month.

On Saturday, November 17th from 2:00 – 4:00 pm, Dave Garden and Hit The Bus will hold a family-friendly concert at Fay School.

Tickets will be sold at the door and in advance at the Library to help get the Children’s Room back up and running. (Stay tuned for the ticket info.)

The fundraiser came about through an offer by Garden. The musician is well known to many that use the Children’s Room. He’s drawn crowds of tots to the Children’s Room (and other venues) for past Music Together events. He asked if he and his band could help raise funds for the cause.

But this isn’t a “children’s music” concert. It’s one for all ages.

Garden will be singing and playing with his popular “party, rock, and dance band”. Hit the Bus’ site touts:

We play an eclectic mix of music ranging from the 50’s through today’s hits. HTB plays the music people want to hear, dance and party to!

The Friends of the Southborough Library volunteers are helping to organize and put on the event. The band is donating it’s time and Fay School is providing the space.

Proceeds from tickets sold will be used to support the Children’s Room following repairs.

The tickets aren’t available for sale yet. So, stay tuned for those details. In the meantime, save the date!

Updated (10/26/18 3:04 pm): Changed some wording in post and flyer on how proceeds will be used at Library’s request.
