ST. CLAIRSVILLE -- Music with Meaning, a performing arts groups featuring a collection of alumni and current students at Ohio University's Eastern Campus, will be presenting a benefit concert in support of Dominick Alexander. Dominic was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in February and has six months of chemotherapy already scheduled at Columbus Children's Hospital.
The concert will take place on Friday, March 31 from 6-9 p.m. inside the sanctuary at Thoburn United Methodist Church in St. Clairsville, Ohio. The group is suggesting a $10 admission donation or a donation of your choice, with all of the proceeds being donated to the Alexander family.
According to Music with Meaning member Kody Starkey, the purpose of this event is to come together in support of the Alexander family in the hopes of providing a peaceful evening full of fun and entertainment. "Dominick is a kind and sweet kid. His absence from school has been difficult on his friends, family, and teachers." he said. "Dom enjoys sports, church, and singing with his choir. Everyone he comes in contact with loves him and his smile is so contagious. He also comes from a great family".
Starkey noted that the entertainment for benefit concert will feature musical performances as well as a stand-up comedy act. "We anticipate a solid turn out from this event. The church's congregation has a massive foundation and is always willing to be involved in some type of service. The community at large has been real supportive of Dom and his family and we look forward to seeing them involved with this event as well."
In addition to Starkey, Music with Meaning is comprised of original members Roman Stinespring, Zoe Buccella, Taylor Porter, Anna Frazier, and Alex Snyder. The group formed in 2014.
