Hits 96, WDOD-FM 96.5 will host a few showcase with recording artists MKTO and Karmin on Aug. 14 at Rhythm & Brews at 221 Market St., honoring the military service members who were shot on July 16 in Chattanooga.
The showcase will be open to the first 150 that provide a donation of any denomination which will benefit the 7-16 freedom fund, according to a news release from the station.
The 7-16 fund, founded by the Community Foundation of Greater Chattanooga, was set up to help cover post secondary scholarships and expenses for the families of those affected by the tragedy.
"These two artists reached out and made it known they were 'Nooga Strong' after learning of the horrific events of July 16th," said Operations Manager Danny Howard.
"They are great friends of the station and wanted to come and perform to raise money for the victims' families."
Platinum-selling duo MKTO consists of Malcolm Kelley and Tony Oller. Chattanoogans might remember them from their appearance at Hits 96's annual "Running of the Chihuahuas."
Karmin is a duo from California known for their unique covers and multiple singles, including "Brokenhearted" which won an American Music Award in 2011.
Doors will open at 4 p.m. and will be open to the first 150 attendees who make a donation of any denomination at the door. No tickets will be available online. More information can be found at www.hits96.com or by calling 423-321-6200.
