Magram said the group raised $16,000 this time, and has raised more than $250,000 since its inception. Most of the money goes to local charities. Other recipients include the Ottumwa Crisis Center & Women’s Shelter, and an organization called Airline Ambassadors International, which transports goods in unused cargo spaces on airplanes to children in need. Those interested in learning more about the concert can contact Magram at childrensholidaybenefit@gmail.com.
