DURHAM, N.H. -- The University of New Hampshire and the Durham Business Association will sponsor a benefit concert featuring the Shaw Brothers that will be held Sunday, Oct. 7, at 6 p.m. in the Granite State Room of the Memorial Union Building at UNH. All proceeds from the concert will go to the United Way's Sept. 11 Fund. This fund has been established to help respond to the immediate and longer-term needs of the victims, their families, and communities affected by the events of Sept. 11.

The concert will begin with performances by Scott Chesney and Craig Werth at 6 p.m., Crushworthy at 7 p.m. and the Shaw Brothers at 8 p.m. Tickets are available at the MUB Ticket Office. Prices are $5 for students (with ID) and children under 12, $10 general (faculty, staff, community) and $20 for a family. Parking will be available in B Lot and some designated spaces in the Mill Road Shopping Center parking lot.

Those attending the concert will also be able to participate in a UNH quilt project "America Unites." This quilt will honor the victims of the Sept. 11 tragedies as well as honoring the American spirit. Fabric squares will be provided at the concert, giving attendees the opportunity to write their own message and sign their name to a quilt square. The red, white and blue quilt will be assembled and displayed at UNH.
