Broken Arrow, OK -
A local woman has organized a concert to help Moore tornado victims.
Sunday night at the Full Moon Cafe in Broken Arrow, five bands took the stage.
All money raised will go to the United Way of Central Oklahoma.
Cherie Mann put together the event and says she was thinking about friends in need. "It's just Oklahoma, that's what we do," Mann says. "I think it's exciting that this event has given a lot of people a way to give back and be involved." Mann says, "Not everyone has medical skills or can drive heavy equipment, but people can come out and open up their wallets and spend money and help out a great cause and come together."
The goal was $5000, but Mann says anything is better than nothing.
