123 Pleasant Street in Morgantown hosted an International Women’s Day Benefit Show Friday for Milan Puskar Health Right. International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8 every year.
International Women’s Day focuses on the movement for the rights of women. This year’s theme for the day was, better the balance, better the world. Numerous bands played in honor of women at 123 Pleasant Street. Price of admission was $10 at the door.
“I just think about all the women that it took to get me here, for me to be able to lead a band, and you known, preform my music. And also, I married a man, I birthed a man, all the men that are our allies that help us along the way,” said Annie Neeley, a musician.
Milan Puskar Health Right offers a free health care clinic for residents of West Virginia who are low-income uninsured or under-insured.
