SICK Benefit for Covenant House Michigan

When I was 15, I was lost. I was a weird punk rock girl with pink hair and my parents did not understand me at all. I was lucky enough to have a best friend named Christie. Christie's mom pretty much let me live at their house from the ages of 13 to 16. I have always felt lucky to know that these two ladies had my back and gave me a place to go when I was arguing about clothes, music, and parties with my parents. My arguments were petty, but some families have to deal with much bigger problems. Sometimes kids have to get away from a bad situation and they don't have anyone to turn to or any place to go.

Covenant House was created for children and young adults ages 13-22. It is a place for people “who have no where else to go”. Kids who come to Covenant House have been abused, neglected, and at times homeless. The Home provides food, shelter, education, and vocational programs for these at risk youth and gives them a chance to do something positive with their lives. Covenant House is a non-profit organization.They state that 90% of the money that they raise goes directly to the people that they serve and is used as efficiently as possible. They are a very positive organization that has already changed over 54,000 people's lives since 1997.

This Saturday SÏCK, 500 Club, Le Voyage, Seven Birds One Stone, and Emily Rose will all be performing at the New Dodge to benefit the charity. They are asking for a donation of $5 at the door and 100% of the proceeds for the night will go directly to Covenant House Michigan. The New Dodge is located at 8850 Joseph Campau in Hamtramck. Doors for the event open at 8 p.m. To learn more about Covenant House go to To learn more about this benefit show, go to the Facebook event page here
