The RiverCenter, in collaboration with the Downtown Davenport Partnership, Moeller Nights, the River Music Experience and Rexroat Sound RS, LLC, invites community members to save the date for a flood relief benefit concert, “Flood Fest,” to be held Friday, June 7, at the River Center in Davenport. All proceeds from the concert will support downtown Davenport recovery efforts.
“While the flooding has significantly impacted downtown Davenport businesses, I’m proud of how our Quad Cities community has rallied to provide support. As we get to the recovery process, it will soon be time to help those who are rebuilding. This flood relief benefit concert is shaping up to be an epic show and provide all Quad Citizens the opportunity to support recovery efforts,” said Kyle Carter, Executive Director, Downtown Davenport Partnership, a division of the Quad Cities Chamber.
Proceeds from the concert will be shared with Grow Quad Cities – Iowa, a 501(c)3 whose mission is to improve the general economic well-being of the Scott County area and the greater Iowa Quad Cities area. Donations are tax deductible per IRS guidelines.
Grow Quad Cities – Iowa also will serve as a fund for community members wishing to donate to help with flood recovery efforts. Downtown Davenport Partnership, a non-profit organization focused on the strategic growth and beautification of historic downtown Davenport, will help determine fund distribution to those businesses in need.
Those unable to attend the concert or wishing to donate further may do so by mailing a check to:
