Senior Jess Orr hosted a community benefit concert on Saturday, June 4 at 4pm in the Brookhaven parking lot at Strath Haven High School. The concert included almost 20 live coffeehouse-style performances by current and past Haven students as well as community members. Additionally, student and community artwork were put on display, raffle items were collected, and students sold baked goods, all to support a meaningful cause to Jess. 

All proceeds from the fundraiser went towards the Domestic Abuse Project (DAP) of Delaware County, Inc. DAP was created in 1976 as part of a movement to provide safety, advocacy and supportive services to victims of domestic abuse not otherwise available within Delaware County. The mission of the project is to prevent domestic violence and empower victims to move towards self-sufficiency. 

“Putting the concert together was definitely a struggle at times, but it’s also been a great experience,” Orr said. “The Domestic Abuse Project does incredible work for the community and I’m proud to be able to support them.” 

Even in the heat of the day, there was a great turnout of supporters for this exceptionally student-driven event, which raised over $1700.
