Earthquake Relief Concerts For Turkey and Syria
Over thirty Turkish, Syrian and local musicians perform on Feb 18 and Feb 19
100% OF TICKET PROCEEDS GO TO RELIEF AGENCIES
In light of the immensely destructive 7.8 and 7.6 magnitude earthquakes which hit South-Eastern Turkey and Syria, New York venue DROM is hosting two earthquake relief concerts on February 18 and February 19. Nearly 40 New York musicians from Turkey, Syria and more than ten other countries are coming together to help raise funds for those affected by this tragedy.
Please join us in NYC on Feb 18-19 and if you are not able to attend in person help us spread the word so we can multiply the numbers and raise more for those in need. People from all corners of the US have donated so far. With over 30,000 lives claimed and more under the rubble, the people in Turkey and Syria are in dire need of help and support from communities across the world.
100% of Ticket Proceeds benefit Turkish Philanthropy Fund and Basmeh Zeitooneh, a registered non-governmental organization working in Syria and Turkey.
