Sweet Alibi, DJ Co-Op and The Bonaduces are playing the benefit show at The Park Theatre on Tuesday, Jan. 19.

- Syrian refugees arrive to warm welcome on wintry Winnipeg day
- Manitoba social agencies gear up for Syrian refugee arrival
The South Osborne Syrian Refugee Initiative and Churchill Park United Church are organizing the event.
SOSRI has a fundraising goal of $60,000 that will be donated to two Syrian families who have relatives living in the area.
They've already raised more than $50,000, and they're hoping the benefit concert will put them over the top.
Tickets to the show are $20 for general admission and $15 for students or low-income families.
The group is also accepting donations on a Go Fund Me page.
