ONEIDA (WSYR-TV) - More than two weeks after the devastating flooding in the City of Oneida, the sounds of DPW trucks were replaced with the sounds of music at a special fundraiser on Sunday.
The event was called "Catalyst Community Concert" and was designed to boost morale and raise money.
Co-organizer Liz Friedel said, "People need to know they're not out here by themselves, that people care about them."
Music surrounded the Madison Street area all day on Sunday.
The grand finale act was Joanne, Leah and Diane Shenandoah, Grammy award winners who have recently played for the Pope at Vatican City.
Their concert was held at La Vie Boheme, one of numerous locations willing to host performances.
The proceeds benefit the American Red Cross.
Canisters are set up at many of the area businesses for continued donations.
Co-organizer Rich Smith said, "This is more than a one-day thing. This is going to take months and months, and even years."
