On August 18, Snowshoe Mountain Resort will host an outdoor concert benefit for flood victims of southern West Virginia. Beginning at 11 a.m. and continuing until 6 p.m., the $10 event will feature bands including Eli and the Road Dawgs, Soup Kitchen, the Carpenter Ants, and many others. The West Virginia Youth Symphony will open the fund raising event. Proceeds from the event will go to the West Virginia American Red Cross, the agency responsible for heading flood relief efforts.
“This event is a chance for West Virginians to band together, enjoy local musicians and assist those who are suffering as a result of the flooding,” said Bruce Pittet, Snowshoe’s Vice President and General Manager. “The line up is incredible and the artists are very excited to perform for the great cause,” he added.
The concert will be held slopeside on the Skidder Slope stage, and will be capped by a fireworks display once the sun sets.
All performers are donating their time to the benefit, which is being held in conjunction with the West Virginia Division of Tourism, the Pocahontas County Convention and Visitors Bureau, and Intrawest Snowshoe Development Corporation.
