Fairfield student holds benefit concert for non-profit

Amber Schaper, a student dually enrolled at Fairfield Ludlowe High School and the Regional Center for the Arts, held a What Would Daniel Do (WWDD) benefit concert on Sunday, March 29, at The Acoustic in Bridgeport, to honor the memory of her friend Daniel Barden, and raise funds for the non-profit organization named for him.

A standing room only crowd attended Sunday’s concert, which featured Schaper and her band Jam Theory. Amber also recently co-wrote and recorded Counting on You, a song for the Sandy Hook Foundation.

“Everyday is another day passed since Sandy Hook,” she said, “and more and more people may forget. This is why, after a year, I am happy to do another concert in Daniel’s name.”

All proceeds from the concert were donated to the WWDD Foundation, a non-profit organization that funds programs that build a sense of community and reduce social isolation.
