Linkin Park will play a benefit concert planned by Los Angeles-area teens for Los Angeles’s first pediatric hospice, to be held at the House Of Blues on the Sunset Strip on March 4. The “Young Angels Concert,” to benefit the city’s TrinityKids Care, is open only to students and their families, with tickets starting at $85. Admission includes a buffet dinner, while all proceeds will go to the hospice.
The concert is the fulfillment of a community service project by a dozen 13-year-olds at the Mirman School in West Los Angeles. “Linkin Park says everything that people our age think about,” says student organizer Matthew Geffner. “They are the best band of our time.”
Geffner adds, “We didn’t want anyone else, so we decided to dream big. When you’re young, and you’re dying, you think big about issues. That’s why Linkin Park is perfect for this concert. Their music is about things that are important.”
TrinityKids Care is the first pediatric hospice in L.A. that provides end-of-life care for children. The organization helps children come home from the hospital regardless of their economic circumstances. More information on TrinityKids Care can be found at trinitycarehospice.com.
