Indie rock band Buckman Page — Eric Bell (left), Matt Cefalu, John Williamson, Marcus Lohrmann and Al Neve — raised more than $500 for Lutheran Disaster Response during a June 24 concert at Chicago's Goose Island Brewpub.
The band donated 100 percent of its proceeds after reading a blog by fellow Valparaiso [Ind.] University alum Mike Nevergall.
As its associate director, Nevergall wrote about Lutheran Disaster Response's work in Joplin, Mo., following tornadoes in May.
"It was a great concert," he said. "And it introduced Lutheran Disaster Response's message to people who wouldn't normally hear it."
