All proceeds will be donated to United Way of Alabama.
An evening of wonderful local music and talent is planned, with the Eagle River Band, and Jay Schneiderman & Friends and more. Suggested donation is $25, but any amount, large or small, is welcomed. Donations can be made online at baystreet.org, at the Box Office or on the phone at 631-725-9500 now or on the day of the event.

The All for Alabama relief concert is in honor of all those whose lives were literally uprooted in recent weeks by the tornadoes. Rebuilding will be required for many months and years to come.
"Everyone involved will be volunteering their time and talents, including all of the musicians, the Bay Street staff and volunteers, and Jay Schneiderman and his staff," states Mitchell. "It's always so heartwarming to see the artists and the entire community come together in times of need for others."
In addition to great music, the theater hopes to collect several donated items from generous local retailers and restaurants to assist in the fundraising efforts. Donated items may be addressed to Michele Wilson and dropped at the box office during business hours from 11 am - 5 pm daily. Please be sure all gifts are properly marked as to who the donor is.
