Six Red Deer-area entertainers are set to Rock the Change at an outdoor benefit concert on Saturday evening at Bower Ponds.

Hip-hop/pop group Ruined Escape Plan, country crooner Amy Lou, folk-rapper Eric Ellsworth, country rocker Garrett Olson, singer/songwriter RJ Willms, and hip hop cover artist Thomas Hutlet will perform from 6 to 9:30 p.m. on the outdoor stage — rain or shine.

Organizers Stacie Moore and Jennifer Allbon, alumni from Notre Dame High School, are holding the all-ages event to benefit Red Deer’s Suicide Information and Education Centre.

The concert will also include guest speaker Dawne Adkins from the centre, who will provide information about suicide prevention.

T-shirts and other merchandise will be for available sale, as well as food and drinks.

But no alcohol will be served or permitted on the grounds.

Admission is free, but donations will be accepted.
