On Saturday, July 31, Baltimore’s own Josh Christina and former The Voice contestant Kata Hay are going to take the stage at Upperco Volunteer Fire Company for a benefit concert in support of the Cockeysville and Upperco Volunteer Fire Companies. All proceeds from the concert will go to the Cockeysville and Upperco Volunteer Fire Companies in honor of Christina’s late grandfather, Chief Elwood “Woody” Banister and his decades-long career. This benefit concert is just one part of Christina’s plan to raise awareness and proceeds for volunteer firefighters across the nation. “Fighting fires in any capacity is one of the sincerest displays of bravery,” says Christina. “But doing it for free, volunteering to be a servant, that’s humanity at its finest.” The July 31 concert is also the inaugural event for Christina’s newly announced Chief Elwood Banister Memorial Foundation (CEBMF,) which Christina hopes will aid in his effort to support volunteer firefighters. One of Christina’s aspirations for CEBMF is to inspire others to use the power of live music to help build bridges between communities and carry on Chief Banister’s legacy.
