Save The Date! Benefit Concert for Youth On Their Own is November 4.

Need a break from Oktoberfest and chili contests?

May we suggest an afternoon of uplifting music basking in the fall sun of Southern Arizona?

Save the date for Saturday, November 4th, for the ballads of Tucson’s Folk Rock Goddess Amber Norgaard and Friends.

Amber Norgaard, Sabra Faulk, and Seth Murzyn will take the stage to spotlight a local non-profit serving Arizona’s homeless youth, Youth On Their Own!

An astonishing fact: Arizona is the 5th worst US state for child homelessness! (courtesy of the National Center on Family Homelessness, November 2014).

This concert benefits Youth On Their Own, a non-profit organization that strives to empower Arizona’s homeless youth to stay in school by providing financial assistance, basic human needs, and one-on-one guidance. For over 30 years they have empowered over 16,000 homeless youth to remain in school and pursue opportunities for self-sufficiency.

Free admission to the concert.  Monetary donations for Youth On Their Own are accepted at the concert.

The concert begins NOON in The Shoppes at La Posada on the La Posada campus in Green Valley, AZ.

If there is rain, the concert moves indoors into Posada Java.
