KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A local group is taking a stand against violence, and they are doing it through music. The group is made up of mothers who know all too well the pain of losing a child.
The show, featuring Marty Raybon, will take place on June 19. The festival begins at 4 p.m., with the concert starting at 7 p.m.
100 percent of the proceeds will go to benefit the families, to help pay for funerals of murder victims.
The mothers said its the least they can do to help the families during a tragic time.
"Today, Kansas City, I believe we stand at forty-two murders. Fourty-two," Mothers in Charge director Rosalyn Temple said. "And most of half of those families have no way of burying their child. And we have to take these calls, and not just going to the scene to support their family, the community and the police department, but not having no way of taking care of their loved one."
Tickets are already on sale, but they are limited. Because it is inside the church, there are only 400 available, and some have already sold. Tickets range in price from $15 - $25.
