Lubbock band works to raise money for Tornado victims

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Over the past month, cities in Texas and Oklahoma have taken a beating from devastating tornadoes. The Lubbock area is fortunate to not have been directly affected. However, one Lubbock band is taking the stage to help those who have lost everything in the storms.

Wednesday night, the Penni Lawrence Band will hold a special fundraising event at Abuelo's Restaurant. They'll be performing for free, but they're hoping those who attend the event will also donate to the American Red Cross. There will also be a live auction and Abuelo's will donate 20% of their proceeds from meals and drinks to the Red Cross, as well.

All of the money will go directly to the victims of the tornadoes in Granbury and Cleburne, along with those in Oklahoma. Lawrence says the tragedies in those cities hit close to home for her, because she lost her home to a tornado in 1997.

"Lubbock has such big hearts and they come together as a community. I know they did for me and my family back in the day. I know we're going to have a great turnout," Lawrence said.

Wednesday evening's fundraiser will be at the Abuelo's Restaurant at 82nd and Quaker, out on the patio.  For more information, visit: www.pennilawrence.com
