Bands raise money for volunteers

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.— 12 banes are playing for 12 hours Saturday to raise money for the Benton-Franklin Volunteer Center.

The proceeds from the Volunteer Jam Benefit go to community needs for training and matching 5,000 volunteers for local projects that support over 200 organizations. 

Just by giving $25 for a single ticket or $20 for groups of ten or more, you can enjoy all types of musicians ranging from a blues band to a cabaret singer.

The event is at the Three Rivers Convention Center.  It goes till midnight.  You can purchase tickets at the door, and they'll even give you a wristband so you can pick and choose which bands you want to rock out to.
