The Lycoming College chapters of Gamma Delta Sigma sorority and Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity will host a benefit concert on Sunday, April 17, from 4:30 to 7 p.m. in East Hall Coffeehouse. Proceeds benefit Edward Migliore, a 10-year-old suffering from a very rare, often aggressive form of bone cancer called Mesenchymal Chondrosarcoma.
The event is open to the public; a donation is asked for admission. In addition, hamburgers, hot dogs, baked goods, ribbons and bracelets will be for sale. Entertainment will be provided by local band Clouds Make Sounds and acoustic artists Luke Bradey and Rob Iacuzio.
"Edward is my close family friend," says Alex Ercole, a Gamma Delta Sigma sister from Lewisburg, Pa. "This has been a life-changing opportunity for me and a lot of other people who have been helping to organize this. To know that even the smallest donation helps is something that truly makes us happy. He is an amazing, outgoing kid who deserves the best."
