Concert for a cause

Sophie Wysocki, a sophomore at the University of Northern Colorado, is putting on a concert at the Union Colony Civic Center in Greeley tonight to raise money for Love 146, an organization that raises awareness for the issue of sex trafficking.

The concert will feature The Fray, Holly Lovell, Churchill and Ashida. Tickets cost $15 and can be purchased at or at the Union Colony Civic Center box office.

The lobby doors open at 7 p.m., the inner doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m.
Wysocki said the idea for the concert came from a class on writing for social change, in which she researched and learned about the sex trafficking industry.

“It really inspired me, and I wanted to do something more,” she said.
