NEW HAMPSHIRE - A benefit this evening in the Upper Valley to raise money and awareness about homelessness.

The concert and raffle is being organized by Tri-County CAP a local outreach program. The benefit is being held at the Main Street Museum in White River Junction from 7 pm to 11 pm. Multiple bands will play music and goodies will given away including a coffee date with New Hampshire Governor Maggie Hassan. The money will go to Tri- County CAP's Homeless outreach program.

 "We are able to put folks up in a hotel if they need a short stay or if they need emergency medication or clothing or a gas card to get to a shelter or maybe their family's home," said Angel Hudson, the Event Organizer. A lot of people don't realize that it actually exists here.  It's not like New york City of Montreal where you see people sleeping on the streets you know pushing their carts around," said Hudson. 

The organization is not setting a goal for the fundraiser. They accept donations all year.
