Westchester is lending a hand to the people of Texas and Florida.
The county is hosting a benefit concert on Saturday, Sept. 16 from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Lasdon Park on Route 35 in Somers for the victims of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma.
The event includes scheduled appearances by the Gerard Carelli Quartet, Andes Manta, the McLean Avenue Band, Gary Adamson, and Merle Williams. Visitors are encouraged to bring a picnic and lawn chairs or blankets for lawn seating.
Admission to the event is a minimum donation of $10 per person for all ages.
Food and refreshments will be available for sale.
Individual donations can also be made by check, payable to the Friends of Lasdon and mailed to Ted Kozlowski, Lasdon Park and Arboretum, Route 35, Katonah, NY 10536.
Net proceeds from the event, including food sales, will benefit Team Rubicon, an organization of current military and veterans, who rebuild homes for disaster victims, and the Houston SPCA, which is working to save the many animals that have been affected by the storm.
