Musical artists Will Turpin and The Way and Amy Gerhartz are joining forces for a charity concert in support of pediatric cancer research and treatment.

Rock By The Sea, an organization that raises money for worthwhile causes through music, will present the star-studded holiday benefit concert at 7:00 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, 2012, at Vinyl, 1374 Peachtree St., Atlanta.

A portion of the proceeds ($10 a ticket) will benefit the Pediatric Brain Tumor Program at Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital in Orlando, Fla.

Turpin, co-founder of the multi-platinum group Collective Soul, contributed the William Dix Classic “What Child Is This?” to the October release of A Rock By The Sea Christmas: Volume Three, a charity CD series of Christmas classics and original tunes. He said the holiday season is best celebrated by finding ways to give back to the community.

“I'm a very traditional person at heart. Celebrating Christmas was a time I looked forward to as a kid, and even more so now that I have children of my own,” Turpin said. “Lending my name and support to fighting pediatric cancer is simply my way of giving back and showing gratitude.”

Gerhartz, who contributed a song to Rock By The Sea’s 2011 charity compilation, is an Atlanta-based singer/songwriter who has opened for several national acts. Her music blends acoustic pop, rock, folk and soul. The bill also includes Lauren St. Jane and the Dead Westerns, Steve Everett, Echo Collection, Travis Denning and other musical guests. All of the artists are available for interviews and appearances to promote the CD and show.

“Cancer happens to everyone. Parents, siblings, spouses, children, friends; cancer is ubiquitous and permeates the fabric that binds us together as human beings. It’s personal,” said Tod Elmore, Rock By The Sea board member and CD and show producer. “Coincidentally, cancer, or rather the fight against it, has the ability to unite us as one, as does music.”

Rock By The Sea is dedicated to planning and producing music festivals, events and products that raise money to financially assist deserving cancer charities that provide direct services to those in need. For more information visit www.RockByTheSea.org.

Tickets for the concert are on sale now at http://ticketalternative.com/Events/21065.aspx.
