Jam Band Event in Southwick

SOUTHWICK, Mass (WGGB) – Supports came from near and far help raise money for local animal shelter.

Starting at 4:00 pm Saturday local bands came out to play for the cause. Everyone who attended was required to pay for a $15.00 ticket at the door. Donations of litter, toys and bedding were accepted in addition to cash. Anyone who showed up with extra donations was automatically entered in a raffle to win $100.00.  For those who didn’t bring extra donations, they could easily enter with just a small $5.00 cover charge.

Shelter workers were very appreciative of the help. “The monetary donations will go into our medical fund. The town doesn’t pay for any other food or medical for the animals in our shelter so benefits like this are very very important to us” said shelter manager Tracy Root.
