CSU Whistler Society holding benefit concert

The Colorado State Whistler Society is throwing a benefit concern April 28 at 7 p.m. at Hodi’s Halfnote to raise proceeds for children affected by the war in the Congo.

The society works closely with the LA-based organization Falling Whistles to raise awareness about children soldiers who are sent to the frontlines of the war armed with just whistles.
Falling Whistles sells whistle necklaces to be worn as a sign of peace and all proceeds go toward rehabilitation of those affected by the war.

The Heydey will headline the show, and Falling Whistles spokesman Yves Muya will share his story about his childhood in the Congo.
