During the concert, the South Orchestra Supporters booster club will be selling baked goods, with the proceeds going to Raiders Helping Raiders, a program that provides resources for South families in need around the holidays. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The event is free. All proceeds from food and drink sold are donated to Raiders Helping Raiders.
