Benefit Concert For Keepmasonmoving.Org CAPITAL DISTRICT - Performers, businesses, and volunteers from across the region have banded together to host a benefit concert for Keep Mason Moving, a new local organization dedicated to helping children with terminal illness, at the Putnam Den in Saratoga Springs on Sunday October 13th, 2013 from 1:00pm – 7:00pm. Less than three months ago, Keep Mason Moving was nothing more than a vision to support Mason Devine, a local six year old boy diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. In less than two weeks, the Putnam Den in Saratoga Springs will be hosting the first of many fundraisers to support the organization’s mission to help children with terminal illness and their families focus on the quality of time they have together. Leading the charge are several local performers, businesses, and a team of dedicated supporters. The event will feature local musicians, food from many area restaurants, and a day filled with indoor and outdoor activities for children of all ages. The $25 admission to the event includes a Keep Mason Moving wristband, delicious food, 6+ hours of music, and activities for children. Children under 13 enter free with paid adult admission.
