Lil Wayne and Fabolous to Perform at Drunk Driving Awareness Concert
Lil Wayne and Fabolous are scheduled to headline a concert in Gainesville, FL tonight (October 1) that is intended to raise awareness about the problem of drinking and driving. According to the University of Florida’s Independent Florida Alligator, a portion of the proceeds from the show will benefit the Corey Dahlem Benevolent Fund, which was established after Gainesville police Lt. Corey Dahlem was killed at the hands of a drunk driver. “Everyone here are pretty much students or graduates of the university,” said Nick Roses, VP of media relations for Social Studies Inc, the promotions company organizing the event. “They all knew about Corey Dahlem. It clicked for them.” The money collected for the fund will go towards college costs for officer Dahlem’s two children Katie and Brandon. The performance starts at 7:30 this evening at the University’s O’Connell Center. Tickets cost between $36 and $101 and are available at the box office or through Ticketmaster.
