‘Gimmie Shelter’ concert raises $2,000 for overflow shelter heat

On a cold, rainy day when icy surfaces kept many people at home, local musicians heated things up in a benefit concert for people who don't have homes.

In spite of the conditions, the adventurous drivers and walkers who came out for “Gimme Shelter” were treated to an amazing concert, and a little over $2,000 was raised to help the First Baptist Church heat the Brattleboro Winter Overflow Shelter.

Singcrony, our female a cappella group, organized the concert, and we thank everyone who attended.

Additionally, we extend an especially warm thanks to the musicians and technicians who so graciously and enthusiastically gave of themselves to create an entertaining and moving afternoon of music and goodwill.
