Concert to Fight Domestic Violence

on Sunday night, my good friend Grace hosted a huge concert to help raise awareness about domestic and sexual violence.

over 250 people attended, and $10,000 were raised for 180, Turning Lives Around

I'm so incredibly proud of Grace for putting this all together and I'm so happy I was able to come and see the concert.

it was absolutely amazing!

the lineup of the concert was:

Eric Reitz
Matt Wade
The Tor Miller Band
The Quincy Mumford Band

All of those bands are local bands.
The Tor Miller Band is extra special to us because the entire band goes to our school!
Last year they won a contest that let them play at a huge musical festival called Bamboozle with some awesome bands such as Matt and Kim, Paramore, MGMT, Drake, and Weezer!
They're THAT good.

We love them so much, but the other three bands playing at the benefit concert were great also!

here are some of my favorite pictures from the night:
