Concert aims to raise money for fallen Boston firefighters
A concert to benefit the families of the fallen Boston firefighters is set to take place this week at the Paradise Rock Club.
The Great American Foundation is putting on the Boston Firefighter Response Concert on Monday to benefit the families of Boston fire Lt. Edward Walsh and Firefighter Michael Kennedy. Walsh and Kennedy died March 26 when they became trapped in the basement of a Back Bay brownstone while trying to put out a massive 9-alarm fire.
Dalton & the Sheriffs, a Boston country music band, will perform. Also, prizes will be raffled and auctioned off.
With the venue, entertainment and all raffle and auction items donated, all proceeds from ticket sales will go to the Walsh and Kennedy families.
Tickets can be bought on Ticketmaster or by calling 617-562-8800. Doors for the show open at 7 p.m.
