Benefit for Amber Wilkins

Dec. 27 Benefit for Amber Wilkins Waiting Room, 6212 Maple St. 7 p.m., $10, onepercentproductions.com The story is tragic on so many levels. A dump truck driver runs a red light, slams into an SUV driven by a 25-year-old mother of a 2-year-old. She was just two blocks from work. The November 5 accident left Wilkins so critically injured, it took her four days to open her eyes and give a nurse a thumbs-up. This is after the death of Wilkins’ younger sister in 2004, who was killed in a car accident on her way home from Bible study. In tragedy lies hope, however. In November, Wilkins’ friends auctioned a concert ticket to raise money for her family. Now, The Waiting Room and three local bands are hosting a show where 100 percent of the take at the door goes to Wilkins’ family. In addition to seeing We Be Lions, Vibenhai and The Vingins, concertgoers can bid in a silent auction — and those proceeds go to Wilkins’ family, too.
