Local media jams for a cause

Posted:

DUBUQUE (KWWL)-- Every year students from Loras College travel to Louventure Cleary School just outside Port au Prince, Haiti as part of an organization called The Haitian Project. In years past students have installed solar panels, constructed a basketball court and a playground, helped to maintain numerous school buildings, and conducted sports clinics for the students.

In that spirit, a number of members of eastern Iowa media have pooled their respective musical talents to raise funds to support projects at the school.

On Saturday, March 5, 2011, the newly-formed, one-night-only, classic rock and roll group the "Bad News" will perform at Dubuque's "Bank Bar & Grille, 324 Main St., from 9 until midnight.

In addition to the band members there will be a few special guest vocalists, including long-time KWWL news anchor Ron Steele, and Dubuque mayor Roy Buol.

Members of the "Bad News" include KWWL Dubuque reporters Lauren Squires and Becca Habegger, as well as staff members from the Telegraph Herald/Woodward, including Rachel Gull, Megan Gloss, Andrea Hauser, Ron Tigges, Hobie Wood, and Kurt Ullrich. Featured guitarists for the evening are Rick Hoffman of Kephart's Music, and Denny Krueger of Rondinelli Music.

A $5 donation will be requested at the door and raffle items will be available. Raffle items can still be donated.
