Concert benefits Crayons4Kids

Kalamazoo-born, Chicago-based group The Nashon Holloway Band brings its funk, soul and blues sounds to Homer Stryker Field as the featured act in the annual Crayons4Kids benefit concert.
The concert begins at 3 p.m. Aug. 20 and will also include The Tom Toms, a rock band from Flint.

In addition to music, this family-friendly event also features food, beer, a silent auction and a variety of kids’ activities, including a bounce house, zip line and face painting. All proceeds benefit Crayons4Kids’ efforts to provide hospitalized children with games, art materials, instruments and electronics to improve their hospital stay.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. The gates open at 2 p.m., and attendees are encouraged to bring chairs and blankets to watch the concert, since seating will be on the field, not in the stands.
