Yesterday, band leader Eric Sosinski presented a check representing the proceeds of that concert to Dr. Sarah Friebert of the Akron Children's Hospital Palliative Care Center and Pam Czech of Cassidy’ Hope Foundation. Benefit organizer Dave Lasco was also on hand to accept the presentation of a whopping $8,067.68 from the Akron Civic Theatre.
