Amplify HOPE benefit concert recap

One week ago at this time of the night, Joey Hyde, Steve Moakler and Brinley Addington were entertaining a crowd at Tin Roof in the Vista in Columbia, SC. With the event in the works since January, it was an incredible feeling to have so much support by not only the USC student body and faculty, but also the Columbia community coming out to the event. Amplify HOPE was an amazing night of raising awareness and over $1,600 towards the launch of the skills training program early this upcoming fall. Thank you to everyone who made this night such a huge success- our interns, volunteers, USC departments and faculty promoting it in their classes, WUSC radio, sponsors, and countless others. We would love to extend a HUGE thank you to Joey Hyde, Steve Moakler and Brinley Addington, along with their band, for coming down to Columbia to play an amazing show benefitting women thousands of miles away. Help us show our gratitude by checking out their music on iTunes, "liking" them on Facebook, and following them on Twitter. Feel free to check out their websites to see when they'll be playing in a city near you if you weren't able to make it out to Amplify HOPE. It's incredible to see what's possible when we come together for the benefit of others. Let's not make this a one-event thing, but let it be the way we live our lives.

If you weren't able to make it or if you want to re-live the fun night, check out our Facebook album.

With Love, Amy
