The local classic rock band Crawford Perkes will perform at a “Night on the Town” benefit for yourloveisyourlife.org, a nonprofit organization serving people in the greater Yolo County region who have been affected by tragic loss of life by suicide, murder or accident.

The band will perform hits from the 1970s, ’80s and ’90s from 7 p.m. to midnight Saturday, April 13, at the Odd Fellows Hall, 415 Second St. in downtown Davis. Refreshments will be served and door prizes will be awarded all evening.

Tickets are $25 and are available at Watermelon Music, 207 E St. downtown. For more information, call organizer Albyena Newberry at 530-204-3265.

“Grief by far is the hardest of life’s lessons,” says Newberry, founder and executive director of yourloveisyourlife.org. “When someone close to us dies tragically in a freak accident, suicide or murder, we are shocked, affected in many ways that may change our lives and perspective about life forever.

“Generally speaking, the hearts of many in the community will help with the initial crisis, however, the survivors can be lost with suffering for years following such a loss. Individuals severely affected can often times become depressed and isolated, making the grief process even more painful and longer then it has to be without help.”

Newberry’s son Jesse was killed April 24, 2006, when he was hit by an Amtrak passenger train near downtown Davis.

Applications are available for financial assistance from yourloveisyourlife.org for burial and funeral expenses, commemorative ceremonies and special events.Requests will be taken from residents of Yolo, Sacramento, Solano, Butte, Placer, El Dorado and Sonoma counties.
