Contributions raised in 2023
For the past 32 years, the Augmented 8 has sponsored the Sing Out for Shelter (SOS) concert to benefit organizations that serve homeless men and women and local organizations that serve the more than 30,000 individuals who experience homelessness each year in the Greater Washington DC Region including Friendship Place and Christ House.
These concerts have raised more than $360,000. In October 2010, Friendship Place honored the Augmented Eight with the 13th annual Benjamin E. Cooper Award, recognizing outstanding contributions by members of the Washington DC community to the cause of ending homelessness.
