Choir Concert & Fundraiser November 17
On November 17th at 7:00 P.M (NEW DATE), ASB leadership will be hosting a virtual concert with the Pacific BoyChoir Academy as a fundraiser for the Berkeley Sexual Harm Survivors Support Group. This Support Group is an organization that dedicates itself to supporting survivors through hosting free sessions facilitated by a trained therapist to survivors of sexual harm. Due to the session being free the group requires funds to help pay for the therapist’s facilitation.
The PBA is a 2x Grammy award winning choir group that has toured different parts of the world giving performances to the likes of Joe Montana, Chabad Telethon, and Zach Galifianakis. The concert will feature music from Kanye West, The Beatles, Oasis, The Weekend, and many more artists and genres.
The tickets to the virtual concert can be purchased here for $10 each with all proceeds going to the group. Please come out and lend your support for the Berkeley Sexual Harm Support Group. We hope to see you there, get tickets now! If you have any questions please contact Zephyr
