“It is amazing to see so many people working tirelessly to plan this incredible event in a short amount of time,” said Karen Riordan, President and CEO of the Myrtle Beach Area Chamber of Commerce. “It’s going to be an exciting night in our town, and we are hoping for a sell-out, so we can make a big impact on those who so desperately need help.”
The event could raise between $500,000 and $750,000 if the concert sells out.
The Hurricane Florence Benefit Concert will be held on Sunday, November 11th from 1 p.m. to 11 p.m. at the TicketReturn.com Field - Pelicans Ballpark, 1251 21st Avenue North, Myrtle Beach, SC.
