Benefit concerts planned for CHS studentBy Jay Turner
The Canton community is rallying around Alexandra Hildred, the CHS sophomore who remains hospitalized with severe head and brain trauma following a car accident on York Street in March.
Two benefit concerts have been planned to help support Alexandra and her family, and both will feature performances by Canton High students and/or alumni.
On Friday, May 25, The Hellfire Club, featuring CHS students Alex Milewski, Claire Fichman, George Ghantous, and Jordan Barros, will host “Band Aid for Alexandra” at 7 p.m. in the CHS cafeteria. Tickets for the show are $5 for students and $8 for adults and will be available at the door. The band is also selling T-shirts for $15, or a T-shirt plus admission for $17.
Refreshments, including baked goods, pizza, soda and bottled water, will also be on sale during the show. Proceeds from the tickets, refreshments, and T shirt sales will go to the Band Aid for Alexandra Fund.
The following weekend, on Saturday, June 2, The Wolff Sisters, featuring CHS graduates Rebecca and Rachael Wolff and CHS sophomore Kat Wolff, will headline the “We Take Care of Our Own” concert at 7 p.m. at First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church on Washington Street. The concert will also feature performances by the bands 500 Pieces and Chuck (featuring Kat Wolff), as well as UU member Steve Berry.
Tickets for the show are $5 for students and $10 for adults and will be available at the door. Concert organizer Diane Wolff is also selling tickets for a 50/50 raffle at select locations throughout town, and she is working with other town organizations to coordinate a donation drive.
The majority of the proceeds from the “We Take Care of Our Own” show will go toward the Hildred family, with the remainder of the funds going to the youth group at the UU church.
Those who would like to donate can do so by sending a check, payable to “Alexandra Hildred Fund,” to HarborOne Credit Union, 95 Washington Street (Village Shoppes), Canton, MA 02021.
