Two bands recently came together to hold a benefit concert for a pair of worthy charities in the Punxsutawney area.

Ridin’ Shotgun and 4 Way held the concert at the Rossiter Legion Post 582, and Post 582 matched the $500 made at the concert for a total donation of $1,000 to the First Church of God Food Pantry.
