UPDATE: Local community theatre actress Doreen Gatti-Lopez attended this concert and writes: "It was an awesome outpouring of love and talent...There were several a cappella groups from CCSU, ECSU and UConn. Of course I was partial to TGFI (Too Good for Instruments) an all female group from CCSU! My daughter Nicole had 2 solos. The show ended with Rubber City Blues Band. They were awesome!
Local actor Chris Kulmann was the man behind this concert. He writes: "I am so lucky to have so many amazing people in my life, and they were able to help me help other people tonight.
