Singers lift voices in Toy Fund benefit
by Jacquelyn Voghel
What was once a traditional holiday benefit show was renewed on Friday night at Amherst College’s Buckley Recital Hall as over 200 people gathered for a “Hodie” concert supporting the Sidney F. Smith Toy Fund.
The “In Perfect Harmony” concert contributed around $1,500 in donations toward the Toy Fund, said choral singer and concert co-producer Brit Albritton. An additional $167 in donations covered printing and advertising expenses for the show.
Albritton said that while he is involved with various areas of activism, the Toy Fund stood out as a particularly unifying cause for the community to rally behind.
