Dublin, OH, March 24, 2016 – The 6100 Band, energy supplier IGS Energy’s own musical group, will be performing a benefit concert open to the public (ages 21 and up) in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Ohio on April 29, 2016 at King Avenue 5, located at 945 King Avenue in Columbus. All cover charges collected that evening will be donated directly to the nonprofit, which was founded in Columbus in 1933.
Scott White, president and CEO of IGS and drummer of The 6100 Band said, “As a band, we decided that we wanted to make our performances about giving back. So when it came to light that several of our employees had been involved with Big Brothers Big Sisters – both as volunteers and as past beneficiaries of the organization – it felt like a really good fit.”
Tim McCarthy, vice president of relationships for the local agency stated, “We are very grateful to IGS Energy for choosing Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Ohio as the beneficiary of this concert. It’s a great opportunity for people in the community to come out and have fun while they support kids facing adversity in central Ohio!”
The 6100 Band is comprised of all IGS employees. In addition to White, the band features Cedric Bailey, field sales territory manager (keyboard); Corey Copper, senior manager of Solutions Center (guitar and vocals); Dan O’Connor, home services product manager (vocals) and Andrew Willcoxon, application development manager (bass). This is the third benefit concert to be performed by the band. Previous concerts have supported Pelotonia and the Down Syndrome Association of Central Ohio.
