TOWN CLERK TO ORGANIZE BENEFIT PERFORMANCE FOR VICTIMS OF JAPAN EARTHQUAKE
We’re looking for bands…volunteers for April 27th benefit at Greenburgh Town Hall…
 
  Town Clerk Judith Beville will organize a benefit performance for the victims of the earthquake in Japan. The event will be held at the lobby of Greenburgh Town Hall on Wednesday April 27 from noon to 7 PM.
  We are looking for musicians/bands to perform during the day. Visitors to Town Hall will have the opportunity to make voluntary donations to a non profit organization. The non profit organization that we will donate the funds to  will be chosen in the near future. .
   We are looking for musicians to perform during April 27th and are also looking for volunteers to help organize this event. After the earthquake in Haiti Town Clerk Beville organized a similar gathering for the victims of the Haiti relief effort. Close to $3000 was raised in one afternoon for AFYA, an organization that provides medical relief  to Haitian  victims. A subsequent fundraising effort was held at the E Hartsdale Ave farmer’s market last year. That initiative also raised substantial funds for the victims of the earthquake.
  If you would like to volunteer for this cause or perform – please contact Judith Beville at jbeville@greenburghny.com or call her at 914-993-1504. If you have family or friends in Japan who have been impacted by the tragedy – it would be meaningful if our community could also help those with a Greenburgh connection.
