Proceeds of this year's concert will go to 696 Build Queensbridge to further their violence prevention work. About 696 Build Queens Bridge: 696 Build Queensbridge’s mission is to strengthen the community and prevent future conflicts by enhancing awareness, promoting health and encouraging professional advancement opportunities. The site utilizes the Cure Violence method - a public health, community-based model that aims to reduce shootings and homicides; to redirect the highest risk youth from a life of violence and to mentor them through pro-social choices; and to shift community norms to reject violence. Our team aims to heal and transform communities affected by violence through the use of credible messengers who themselves have lived a life of violence – but have chosen a different path.
If you would like to make a donation in advance, or if you will not be able to attend the concert, please consider donating to 696 Queensbridge here:
