Minneapolis musicians join together
to raise awareness of the crisis in Darfur.

Minneapolis TAKE COVER - 2/5/07

Minneapolis Take Cover is an Annual Concert featuring local Minneapolis bands and musicians. This year, the concert was held on February 1st at the Varsity Theatre in Dinkytown in Minneapolis and raised nearly $2,000 for the American Refugee Committee's work in Darfur.

"All of the musicians and myself are so proud to be able to raise money for ARC and all the important work ARC does," said the organizer of the event. Take Cover's performers included Chris Koza, Haley Bonar, Cowboy Curtis, Bill Mike, One For The Team and Seymore Saves The World.

In addition to some great music, the event also provided an opportunity for people to learn about what is happening in Darfur. ARC and other local organizations were on hand to talk to concert-goers and bring more awareness to the crisis in Darfur.
