A special benefit concert for a local boy with cancer takes place this Saturday, March 4 at The Chance in Poughkeepsie.

Gabriel is described as a sweet, innocent 5 yr old boy who was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer back in December and has begun treatment. Friends are getting together to help out the family during this difficult time. A great lineup of Hudson Valley bands will be helping with the cause on Saturday night including Big Guns, Adesta, Mama Doom, and Parallel Universe. There will be raffles and ptrizes, with all donations going to help out Gabriel and his family. If you can't make the show, please consider donating to Gabriel's Army, a fund set up to help through youcaring.com here. No donation is too small. Every bit counts.

Tickets for the Rockin for Gabriel benefit show this Saturday at 6:30pm are just $10 and on sale now through The Chance box office at 845-471-1966 and ticketweb.com
