AMA Chapter at CSULB to Host Benefit Concert

The American Marketing Association (AMA) chapter at CSULB will host a benefit concert and silent auction on Friday, March 17, to raise funds for the non-profit organization “Rebuilding Together” and assist its rebuilding efforts in the Gulf States region.

In addition, the group will send some 30 CSULB students on an “Alternative Spring Break” in April as volunteers to help directly with the organization’s clean-up and rebuilding efforts in Lake Charles, La., one of the areas devastated by Hurricane Rita last August.

The benefit concert will begin at 7 p.m. in the Richard and Karen Carpenter Performing Arts Center and feature three bands that have offered to play for free. Along with a CSULB jazz ensemble, there will be musical performances by two local blues bands – The Jeff Jensen Band and Johnny the Bossman. Tickets may be purchased through the Carpenter Performing Arts Center by calling 562/985-7000 or online.

The goal of the concert is to raise $15,000 to donate to the rebuilding efforts, said Shabnam Irilian, vice president of communications for CSULB’s AMA chapter who also serves as the Gulf States Rebuild Project executive marketing coordinator. She also noted that the funds raised will be used to send students to Louisiana.

For more information about the benefit concert or the “Alternative Spring Break,” contact Irilian at 562/221-1990 or by e-mail.
