USC sorority, fraternity concert will benefit Martha Childress | Events
Fraternities and sororities at the University of South Carolina are organizing an event to support fellow student Martha Childress, the 18-year-old who was wounded by a stray bullet while waiting for a cab in Five Points.
Childress was paralyzed from the waist down in that incident.
The event, a concert called "Not So Thirsty Thursday", will be held at the intramural fields behind the Strom Thurmond Wellness and Fitness Center.
The concert is open to USC students, faculty, and staff only. It starts at 10 p.m. and will end at 2 a.m.
In addition to the music, there will be a suggestion box to submit ideas about how to improve public safety.
Donations will also be accepted to assist with Childress' medical care.
