Musicians came together to perform in White Plains Sunday for a fundraiser event to benefit war-torn Ukraine.
After seeing images out of the country, Neal Francese said he came up with the idea to host the event to benefit the people impacted by the war. He said the images of families and children being in the freezing cold and hungry motivated him to help.
With entertainers who called themselves "Artists for Ukraine" performing on the stage, the venue was packed and the energy high.
One native Ukrainian in attendance said he was grateful for the outpouring of support for his native country and the loved ones who are still there.
As one performer after another belted out rock tunes with the crowd often singing along, organizers said they will never lose sight of the fact that millions have fled their homes, and others have been killed and wounded in a war that Ukraine did not start.
Organizers also said more events are planned to help the people of Ukraine as the war continues
