King’s High School is hosting a benefit concern May 11 to benefit the first East African FTC Robotics Team from Beacon of Hope School in Uganda.

The concert will feature classic rock band “Right Turn Only,” comprised of King’s High School students. The concert is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. in the Mike Martin Gym on the King’s campus. The students are donating all proceeds to the Beacon of Hope School, Pilgrim Africa in Soroti, Uganda.

The students of “Right Turn Only” have partnered with King’s High School ASB representatives, as well as the King’s High School FRC Robotics Team 4911 CyberKnights. The King’s High School Robotics team has worked closely with the Beacon of Hope School before, as they started the first East African FTC Robotics Team, CyberKnights Uganda, five years ago.

The Kings CyberKnights have maintained a close relationship with the Beacon of Hope School, visiting nearly every summer and video-chatting throughout the year. The Beacon of Hope School robotics team has competed in international contests such as GISUTECH, where they were gold medalists, and received national news coverage. The money raised at the benefit concert will be used to financially support the construction of a new robotics lab in Uganda.

The concert is open to the public and members of the community are invited. Tickets can be purchased for $10 for students, $15 for adults, and $20 at the door. The link to purchase tickets is: https://bpt.me/3387006
