Sister Hazel Performs for a Good Cause
Published December 7th, 2013
GAINESVILLE -- Just weeks after headlining this year's Gator Growl, Gainesville's own Sister Hazel returned to the stage Friday night for a great cause.
To mark their 20th year as a band, Sister Hazel performed a full acoustic set in front of the Gainesville coffee shop founded by the band's lead singer Ken Block.
Friday's performance was just one part of a three day event called "Cympli-Festivus", in which money will be raised to help feed children in the tiny village of Los Laureles in Honduras.
Block says 100 percent of all the money raised through ticket sales will go towards building a feeding center in the impoverished town which the band visited earlier this year.
Block says close to a thousand tickets were sold in advance of this weekend's event.
Tickets are still available at the door.
The festival continues Saturday night with the first season winner of "The Voice", Javier Colon, taking the stage.
