Benefit for El Refugio featuring Indigo Girls, Special Guest Matt Nathanson and Chastity Brown
On April 30, Indigo Girls will headline a benefit concert at Variety Playhouse for El Refugio featuring special guest Matt Nathanson and opener Chastity Brown. El Refugio visits immigrants detained by ICE and asylum seekers who are held at Stewart Detention Center in Lumpkin, GA, welcomes the families of those detained to their comforting hospitality house, and educates hundreds of people a year on the U.S. immigration and detention system. In December, El Refugio was gifted a new home by Samantha Bee in her TBS program Full Frontal. The purpose of this benefit will raise funds for continued renovation of the new home, and for the development of a post-release program. 100% of the net proceeds for the benefit will go directly to El Refugio.
