Jurassic 5 To Help Women’s Shelter

The Jurassic 5 will

perform at a benefit concert tomorrow (December 3), to help raise money for a

non-profit organization that helps over 4,000 homeless and abused women and children

each month.

The group is part

of the musical line-up at the annual Sallie Mae benefit concert for Las Vegas’

Shade Tree Women’s Shelter.

The event has taken

place annually now for six years. Employee’s of Sallie Mae’s 300-person-call

center in Summerlin, Nevada forsake their annual Christmas party and instead

try to raise money for the shelter.

"This line-up

is drawing interest from music fans from throughout the region," said Jeff

Whorley, executive vice president of Sallie Mae, the nation’s leading provider

of education funding. "With the support of these incredible musicians,

Sallie Mae’s employees and the community at large, we are expecting our best-ever

turn out. Shade Tree meets critical needs in the Las Vegas community and deserves

our help."

In addition to

J5, Jem and local musician Geoff Byrd will open the show, which will take place

at the House of Blues.

The performance

is open to the public. General admission tickets are $25 and reserved seats

are $40.
