“As musicians, we’re all honored to do our part to try to alleviate homelessness. This winter promises to be a harsh one, we’re asking all our Aquidneck island friends to once again come out and support this great night of music for a great cause,” Mark Gorman said.
“Lucy’s Hearth and The McKinney Shelter do a wonderful job of providing temporary housing to our homeless population. SINGING FOR SHELTER allows these local musicians to support the great work done by these shelters,” Gorman continued.
