- A weekend of virtual concerts is raising money to save a blues club in Blawnox. But more importantly, it's paying back a man who's raised millions for charity. Ron Esser is in jeopardy of losing his beloved club, Moondog's, which has been closed during the pandemic. So more than 70 acts are performing virtually this weekend to raise money for this man who's given plenty to the food bank and the Autism Society. There are 20 national acts performing, and many regional performers, including Joe Grushecky and the [INAUDIBLE] Brothers. Blues guitarist Cheryl Rinovato is one of the organizers.
CHERYL RINOVATO: You know what a giving man he is, and the work that he does with Band Together Pittsburgh with the Autism Society, with the Blues Festival for the last 25 years. He's raised almost three million for the food bank. So I thought that we need to do something.
- You can watch or donate to the Save Moondog's Concert through their KDKA-- through their Facebook page-- that's called "Save Moondog's." They hope to raise $30,000 before the first note was played. They already raised half that amount.
