Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - LOCAL NEWS - Staff Re­port

WEST CH­ESTER » A “Com­pas­sion Con­cert for Hur­ri­cane Re­lief” fea­tur­ing Kat­e­gory 5 will be held at the Ch­ester County His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety at 6:30 p.m. on Oct.15.

Kat­e­gory 5, the WMGK house band and re­gional classic rock cover band, is part­ner­ing with Project 938, a new church in West Ch­ester, to host the ben­e­fit con­cert for the vic­tims of Hur­ri­cane Har­vey.

“With a name like ‘Kat­e­gory 5’, we’ve re­ceived sev­eral re­quests for hur­ri­cane ben­e­fit con­certs,” says lead singer Kat Pigli­a­campi. “We are thrilled to use our name and our mu­sic to sup­port a good cause.”

Project 938, a new church start­ing in West Ch­ester on Su­per Bowl Sun­day Feb. 4, 2018, is putting on the con­cert.

“One of our key val­ues as a church is to ‘ex­tend com­pas­sion,’” says Project 938 Pas­tor Marc Luce­nius. “When the hur­ri­canes hit, we couldn’t think of a bet­ter way to ex­tend com­pas­sion than to sup­port the thou­sands of peo­ple who lost their homes.”

The con­cert is on Sun­day, Oct. 15, at 6:30 p.m. on the sec­ond floor of the Ch­ester County His­tor­i­cal So­ci­ety. A VIP re­cep­tion with mem­bers of Kat­e­gory 5 will be held prior to the con­cert from 5-6:30 p.m. at Iron Hill Brew­ery. Tick­ets for the con­cert are $20, and the VIP re­cep­tion is $40, which in­cludes spe­cial seat­ing at the con­cert and the pre-con­cert ap­pe­tizer re­cep­tion. *All the pro­ceeds will go to sup­port Bayou City Re­lief, a church ini­tia­tive in Hous­ton work­ing with lo­cal and na­tional agen­cies to meet the needs of home­own­ers who don’t have the re­sources to re­build their homes af­ter the hur­ri­cane floods.
