For the second year, the Abbey Road on the River music festival will contribute a percentage of funds to the American Red Cross. August 31 and September 1 have been designated Red Cross Days and Red Cross will receive a percentage of walk up ticket sales.
The event takes place at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center at the National Harbor, MD. This indoor/outdoor concert will feature over 50 live concerts a day with different bands and musicians from around the world. The American Red Cross will sell preparedness items at the Festival and provide information about precautions to take before, during and after an emergency. A Gretsch guitar has been donated to the Red Cross and will be auctioned, with 100 percent of contributions going to Red Cross disaster relief programs.
The American Red Cross prevents and alleviates human suffering in the face of emergencies by mobilizing the power of volunteers and the generosity of donors. The American Red Cross in the National Capital Region serves the District of Columbia; cities of Fairfax, Falls Church, Manassas City, Manassas Park and Alexandria and the counties of Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, and Prince William in Virginia, and Montgomery and Prince George’s Counties in Maryland.
