A metal benefit concert was held on August 26th at Yurek's Cafe with all proceeds going to the Homeless Grapevine Newspaper. Surge, Affixiate, and DH, local metal bands, played to a crowd of around 100 people and raised over $400 for the Grapevine. Dave Ziegler, who coordinated the event, said that he and the bands hope to make this benefit an annual event to help the homeless. Yurek's, located at 8909 Garfield Boulevard in Garfield Heights, also made a generous donation to the Grapevine. These benefits are not only a way to raise money for the newspaper, but are also an opportunity to educate the public about the plight of the homeless while showcasing the talent and social awareness of local musicians.
