A benefit event hosted by Cornell radio station WVBR at Lot 10 Aug. 2 raised more than $3,000 for those affected by the Simeon’s crash on the Ithaca Commons, according to event organizers.

The nine-hour event, titled “Real Rock Relief,” featured over a dozen local musicians and was attended by hundreds, raising money through food and silent auction prizes provided by local businesses.
