Hurricane Katrina Benefit Concert

On Friday, November 18, 2005 the East Quogue Elementary School had a special Jazz Band Benefit Concert to raise money for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. The evening also included special performances by the EQ chorus and EQ Glee Club.

The evening began at 6pm with a silent auction containing donated items from local community businesses as well as an autographed CD and photographs from entertainers like Harry Connick, Jr.

A full house attended the concert and auction and so far, over $8,000 has been raised. All proceeds will be proudly donated to the Habitat for Humanity charity. Additionally, 120 backpacks will be sent to a school in Mississippi. Special thanks go to Penni Russo, East Quogue's instrumental music teacher and band director for organizing the concert and auction. A number of other East Quogue teachers and community members were instrumental in assuring the success of this event.
