When tragedy strikes, Rochester Institute of Technology steps up and does its part to help out.

In the wake of the devastating tsunami in Southeast Asia, RIT student groups, faculty and staff have raised more than $1,800 in relief funds, says Phyllis Walker, director of the Student Volunteer Office.

To cap off the relief efforts, a group of students are organizing Project: Relief, a tsunami benefit concert from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Friday, March 18, in the Gordon Field House and Activities Center.

Ten bands will play on two stages at the concert—Mountain Mojo Authority, The Niche, Dudley Dawson, Candid, Oshe, Doja, Gregory Paul, Chasing Daylight, Daggar and The Fashionistas.

Tickets—$5 for RIT students, $10 general admission—will be available at the door. For more information, contact Sara Stump at projectrelief@gmail.com or visit www.projectreliefonline.com.
