Here was the original post and impetus to the fund raiser:

Andy Hughes, of TUGG, contacted Megan Tomlinson from The Great River Folk Fest and Moon Tunes suggesting we do a Flood Relief Concert. It will be on the Oktoberfest South Side Fest Grounds on Thursday September 13th. Pat Stephens has joined our planning committee. We will have music, food, refreshments, and accepting donations to help those families in our area that have had their lives turned upside down due to the flooding. More details coming soon. Watch, listen, and read the media outlets and our Facebook pages for further announcements but for now, get this date on your calendar and let’s help our family and friends that need support due to the flooding. Thanks to my fellow Oktoberfest Board of Directors for providing us the venue to host this fund raiser. Stronger Together!
