Silver Creek/Gowanda flooding benefit concert...

We are frantically working on plans for the upcoming flooding victims benefit concert.
We would like to hold the concert in the Silver Creek Central Schools auditorium on a Sunday afternoon in September with a reception immediately following the concert.

Our preliminary concert plans would include the Sheridan/Cattaraugus Community choirs, The Dave Golando Big Band, and the Big Bore Brass choir.

If you can help in any way, please contact Bud at:
