Another don’t-miss event today involves a number of local musicians coming together for a fundraiser to help the kidney paired donor exchange program. Randy Renard has a band called Autumn’s Golden Oldies, named after his daughter who died after a failed attempt to get her body to accept her donor kidney, which had been provided by her father.

The fundraiser will be held at Splash Magic, 213 Yogi Boulevard, Northumberland, starting at 8:30 a.m. and going throughout the day until midnight. In addition to Autumn’s Golden Oldies, participating bands are Kiera, Brandon Barnhart, Patric Moore (an Elvis impersonator), Michael Swiegard Band, Rumor Has it (a ’60s and ’70s band), PA Crude and Jesse.

A donation of $20 for adults, $1 for kids 9-18, and under 9 get in free. 

That’s quite a lineup for $20 and it goes to a great cause. You can find more information at www.autumnsgoldenoldiesband.com
