Benefit Concert for Wyandanch's Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal Church

The Bob Morris Irish Band will perform a second benefit concert for Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal Church in Wyandanch on Wednesday, February 27, at the Nag's Head Ale House in Huntington.

A free-will offering will be received to help rebuild the outreach center, which serves 1,000 needy residents each month on a nonsectarian basis in a community which is more than 75% black and nearly 20% Hispanic. Both the outreach center and rectory were devastated by an arson attack a few weeks ago.

The band’s first benefit concert, on January 23, generated more than $10,000 from a standing-room-only crowd of more than 200. Fr. Bill Brisotti, pastor of the Wyandanch parish, has been lead banjoist with the Bob Morris Irish Band for many years.
