New Eyes for the Needy is proud to announce the second annual Kids Rock for Vision concert on Saturday, March 6 at St. John's Lutheran Church in Summit, NJ. Once again, the concert will be generously sponsored by The School of Rock Music, Chatham. Tickets are $20 and doors open at 2:30. All proceeds from the concert go directly to purchase new prescription eyeglasses for poor children living in the United States.
The concert will bring together local talented teens and their bands to sing and play for better vision for poor children. Sam Taggart, a Summit resident and high school senior at Morristown-Beard High School is chairing the concert committee of over 20 teens from around the area. "We sold out last year's concert raising $8,000 that helped purchase 125 pairs of glasses for kids around the country who otherwise couldn't afford them"," said Sam. "We hope we can do even more this year. There will be a few changes and a few more bands so the audience can get an even better show!" Sam added that "the purchase of three tickets, or a $60 dollar donation, will buy a new pair of eyeglasses to help a child in need."
Susan Dyckman, Executive Director for New Eyes for the Needy, commented "If last year's concert is any indication of this year's, it should be a wonderful time for the performers and the audience members. The level of talent and professionalism from these teens was extraordinary. Their commitment to their music and to raising funds for our cause is not only commendable; it's also just plain fun!"
