CPN's musical fundraiser will feature Johnny Hoy and the Bluefish
Day-long Benefit Concert/Auction to be held at the Sons of Italy Hall
The 6,000 member grass-roots renewable energy advocacy group Clean Power Now will mount a benefit concert at the Sons of Italy Hall on Route 28 in Mashpee on Saturday, September 23rd from 2:30pm to 10pm. The event, which will include an auction and raffle, will feature the music of Johnny Hoy and the Bluefish and The Rock It Ups.
Renewable energy exhibits will also be on display throughout the event and the popular "Noah's Ark Awards", Clean Power Now's annual tongue-in-cheek awards will once again be given to those individuals and organizations that have, in their own way, done the most to promote or obstruct the forward movement of renewable energy in America.
An all-you-can-eat buffet meal will also be available at the event for a small charge.
Liz Argo, a board member of Clean Power Now and principal organizer of the event, said: "This concert, with two of the Cape's best-known bands, is our way of thanking members and others whose efforts have done so much to keep local renewable energy projects on track in the face of misguided opposition. It's also an opportunity for these supporters to furnish the means for us to continue this vital fight on so many fronts."
The non-profit Clean Power Now was formed in 2003 to support viable renewable energy projects in the region, and specifically to provide the public with information and education on the benefits of such projects. The organization's membership, currently at 6,000, has often been mobilized to convey opinion to legislators on bills in preparation, both in Congress and at the State House.

Clean Power Now is a non-profit volunteer organization that informs citizens and empowers them to support viable renewable energy projects and policies, and to secure their local and regional benefits.
