"Singing for Sandy" benefit Sunday at Lone Star

Posted 10:49am on Saturday, Dec. 08, 2012

Along with Sunday's benefit for Norton Records, an independent Brooklyn record label hit hard by Hurricane Sandy, at Magnolia Motor Lounge, singer-songwriter Sunshine Emery has helped assemble a day-long "Singing for Sandy" benefit at Lone Star nightclub in downtown Fort Worth.

Doors open at noon; admission is a $10 donation benefiting Island Harvest, which bills itself as the "largest hunger relief organization" on Long Island. Children get in free with a paid adult, but will have to leave by 8 p.m., when the benefit becomes 21-and-up only.

Food, raffles and auctions will be held, along with plenty of live music from Swan Song, Fender Benders, Darwin Prophet, Action Required Now, 50 Thick, Trio Loco, Vinny and the Jets and many, many more. If you cannot make the event, you can still make a donation to Island Harvest at any Wells Fargo location under "Singing for Sandy."

We now have a new, simpler way for you to enter and search for events, at listings.dfw.com. As always, when you submit an event to appear online, it will also be available for us in our print publication. But now you can simply enter your event and provide an email address, rather than creating a separate account and registering. Our new listings tool is still a work in progress, so we appreciate your patience as we fine-tune it. Please contact us at hsvokos@dfw.com if you have any questions or concerns.
