Chris Hassett Headlines “Friends and Lovers” AIDS Benefit July 20

Chris Hassett

Chris Hassett, Kenny Ard, Sue Palmer, Drew Massicot, Kay Etheridge and many more musicians will put on a night of music at First Unitarian-Universalist Church of San Diego, 4190 Front Street (Hillcrest, across from UCSD Hospital), Friday, July 20.
Marking the 25th anniversary of a concert series that has raised money for AIDS support organizations, the “Friends and Lovers” concert will benefit the UCSD Owen Clinic and the San Ysidro Health Center.
“I was in the first concert,” Hassett told Zenger’s Newsmagazine in a forthcoming interview about his current CD, This I Promise You. “We did it through the late 1980’s and mid-1990’s, and always chose organizations bringing assistance to people with AIDS or people who needed help. We haven’t held the concert in a few years, but this is the 25th anniversary and we felt we should commemorate it. We’re going to put on a fun show.”
The concert will start at 7:30 p.m. The suggested donation is $10.
