SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- Theatrical Artist’s Prep of Scotch Plains presents “ONE SONG,” a virtual benefit concert on Friday, May 8, at 7:00 p.m.
The live-streamed event hopes to raise $1,500 for the Fanwood-Scotch Plains Rotary’s fundraiser, providing relief to those in Union County currently affected by COVID-19.
The concert will feature the young talent of Scotch Plains and the surrounding area. Participating organizations include Applause Theatre, Pineda Studio, Play Theatre, Stage Craft, S.T.A.R.S. Theatre and Theatrical Artist’s Prep, among others.
“Applause Theatre encourages kids to give back to their community through the sheer love of the arts. This event is the perfect opportunity for our kids to do just that,” Krystle Tomlinson said.
The concert will be streamed on Theatrical Artist’s Prep’s Facebook and Youtube channel for easy viewing. Special appearances are expected by Mayor Al Smith and Scotch Plains-Fanwood Superintendent of Schools Dr. Joan Mast.
“The club is raising money to benefit health care providers and first responders who live in Scotch Plains and Fanwood,” Fanwood-Scotch Plains Rotary President, Wayne Zuhl said.
Monies raised by the Rotary’s GoFundMe page continue to be used to purchase masks for nurses and doctors at Overlook Medical Center in Summit, provide meals and supplies to at-risk individuals. Additionally, funds are used to purchase gift cards to area restaurants, which are given to first responders and also help support local small businesses. Any donation will help to make an impact.
