A long list of artists will be at the Tuscon Convention Center on Thursday, March 10 to participate in a fundraiser for the Community Foundation of Southern Arizona and the newly established Fund for Civility, Respect, and Understanding.

The new fund will "support individuals and families affected by the January 8th shooting in Tucson, and will promote civility and respect in public discourse, schools, and the community. 

The fund will also work to increase awareness of mental health symptoms, prevention and treatment services."

Appearing on that night's bill will be Jackson Browne, Alice Cooper, David Crosby & Graham Nash, Sam Moore, Nils Lofgren, Keb’ Mo’, Jennifer Warnes, Jerry Riopelle, Dar Williams, Ozomatli, and Calexico.

There will also be speakers during the evening including shooting victim Ron Barber, NASA astronaut Mark Kelly (husband of Gabrielle Gifford), Lea Marquez Peterson (president of the Tucson Hispanic Chamber of Commerce) and Tucson Mayor Bob Walkup.

Tickets go on sale on Saturday morning at 10 AM.
