Bow Wow to Perform at Fund Raiser for Bronx Fire Victims
Rapper Bow Wow is set to perform alongside R&B singer Lloyd on Saturday night (May 19) at a fund raiser for victims of a deadly fire in the Bronx. According to the New York Post, a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will be given to the surviving members of two African immigrant families that lost loved ones in the March 7 fire. “We’re donating back to the victims 20 percent of the profits,” said Elliot Hurdy of the Paradise Theater in the Bronx, where the show will be held. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster and range in price from $40-80. The March 7 fire on Woodycrest Avenue claimed the lives of nine children and one adult and shocked the entire city of New York. On the day of the victims’ funeral, thousands of mourners lined the streets to pay their respects.
