The Cincinnati USA For Relief Concert organized by Peter Frampton and Clear Channel Entertainment raised $10,000 in net proceeds for the Clear Channel Relief Fund. The four-hour concert at Cincinnati’s historic Taft Theatre on December 9, featured performances by an eclectic array of past and present Cincinnati musicians including Frampton, Blessid Union of Souls, Justin Jeffre of 98 Degrees, ONE, the Reggie Calloway Band, Pay The Girl, and Greg Schaber & High Street (featuring Sweet Alice Hoskins, Big Joe Duskin, and Little Al Thomas).
The Clear Channel Relief fund provides funds to police, firefighters and emergency workers in New York, Washington, DC, and Pennsylvania, as well as U.S. Military and National Guard personnel, the national and local chapters of the American Red Cross, and the national and local chapters of the Salvation Army, in response to the September 11 tragedies.
“It was wonderful to see the city of Cincinnati come together for a night of great music that also raised funds for those in need,” said Frampton. “I want to thank all the artists who performed, all the celebrities and businesses who donated items to the silent auction, my new home city of Cincinnati for coming out to the show, and Clear Channel Entertainment for all their hard work. When we band together, we can accomplish many things, as this night proved.”
“It was a pleasure and an honor to work with Peter Frampton and all of the acts that so generously gave their time for what we all know is a worthy cause,” said Patrick Leahy, VP of Venue Operations with Clear Channel Entertainment.
