The San Francisco Folk Music Club and the Camp New Harmony Committee presents: A Benefit concert for the Faith Petric Camp New Harmony Scholarship Fund. Times have been hard, and our accounts are sadly low. In order to help get more people, and some of our very favorites to camp this year, we're hosting a benefit concert to build them back up. The Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian Universalists have generously donated a portion of the rental fee to ensure our success. And you're in for a treat as some of the most wonderful performers, and most generous community members are giving their time to make this a fabulous show.
