Zeno’s to Hold Benefit for Staff Affected by Sandy

One of the best things about the Penn State community is how we come together and unite when tragedy strikes. This was on display over the last year and a half. Last year, Hurricane Sandy devastated a major part of the East Coast, which is home to a significant portion of Penn State students.

One of those most affected was a former staff member of Zeno’s Pub who lost his home and most of his belongings in the hurricane. Now, Zeno’s is helping him put his life back together. Benefit For A Friend is a benefit concert started by Zeno’s to help those affected by the storm recover and get back on their feet.

Though the benefit was started by Zeno’s, several local businesses have stepped up to sponsor the event, including Webster’s Cafe, Rapid Transit, Appalachian Outdoors, Tattoo Mark’s, Cafe 210, and Herwig’s Bistro. The concert is planned for Monday, January 28 at 6 p.m. and will feature six local artists. There will also be a Chinese auction to help raise funds.

Acts include:

Erin Condo

Harold Taddy with Jon Spearly

Biscuit Jam

The Nightcrawlers | Read More

Pure Cane Sugar

Ted McCloskey & The Hi-Fi’s

Everyone is encouraged to come out and help support a Penn State community member in need. If you can’t make the event on the 28th, you can still help out by donating a check to:

Zeno’s Pub (care of Christopher Brida)
100 West College Ave
State College, PA 16801
Memo: Benefit For A Friend

Let’s get together and show what the Penn State community is all about, and why We Are!
