KENNEWICK, WA-- A Kamiakin High School student is dedicating her senior project to a good cause.

Kamiakin senior, Macie Briggs is putting in many hours to organize a concert to help teens in need when they feel they have no options left.

Briggs planned a charity concert to benefit the Youth Suicide Prevention Program.

The concert will happen November 7th at the Kamiakin High School auditorium.

Briggs booked a popular band, Eclectic Approach, to play and bring people together for a good cause.

She says she wanted to dedicate her time to something that makes a positive and lasting impact.

"Since you're spending so much time on it, it's 50 hours or more sometimes even more, if you're doing something that long might as well be something that's going to help somebody else and not just benefit one person," said Briggs.

Briggs says she hopes to sell out the 500 person theater and raise thousands of dollars for the Youth Suicide Prevention Program services.

If you'd like to go to the concert, tickets will be available at the Kamiakin auditorium on the night of the concert, November 7th.

You can buy them for $5, starting at 6:30 pm.
