Syracuse and the surrounding area continue the proud tradition of caring as the holiday season kicks in. I will do all I can to help spread the word with regard to worthwhile benefits in the name of charity and giving to help our neighbors in need. These shows all feature some wickedly delicious entertainment and just so happen to be happening at some of my favorite bars in the area. Fusion is hands down one of the best rock clubs to hit the scene in the last few years and of course, The Lost Horizon has been the Boss for decades. Here then are a few charity/benefit events happening. KUDOS to those involved, sponsoring, and those that have time to attend!

October 27th, 2011 – A life was lost far too soon. Zachary Blanchard’s life was taken tragically. As we make our way through life there are those who touch our lives and leave a lasting imprint that will never diminish. We miss you Zach.
One hundred percent of all proceeds will go to Paul and Trudy Blanchard, to cover costs of the funeral and other related expenses inflicted upon the family.
There will be t shirts available for purchase by donation (min. $1 ) as well as glow in the dark bracelets for $5, and as always Velocity will be set up to feed the masses after a throw down like no other.
