HOUSTON (KIAH) While many people are focusing on the rest, relaxation and the good times they are anticipating for the summertime, there are so many others who are dreading what the summer months bring oftentimes dangerous and unbearable heat – especially in the Houston area.
The people who are most vulnerable, primarily, are our children, elderly and yes -even pets. Organizers for an upcoming concert are not only hoping they pack the house for their star-studded lineup of performers, they are using the resources gained to give back to those in need.
The R&B Summerfest is featuring Lyfe Jennings, Case, 702, Inayah, TDash, Chrystal Domes and J. Song,
and hosted by Young Joc and comedian Rude Jude, and DJ Lil’ Man and Derrick D. Proceeds from the concert are being used to buy air conditioners for seniors, to help them beat the heat.
The CDC estimates that over 650 people die each year from heat-related illnesses. The majority of
deaths are adults over age 65, especially those who live alone, those without access to air conditioning
and those with underlying health problems.
