Fort Worth singer-songwriter Joshua Ingram is putting on a free 12-hour concert outside at Harvest Hall at Hotel Vin (215 E Dallas Rd, Grapevine, 817-796-9696) from 10am to 10pm. Called ALZ the Songs, this second annual event benefits the North Central Texas chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association (ALZ.org, 214-455-4861). Ingram said he’s proud to work with the organization on The Longest Day, in which participants from all around the world come together to fight Alzheimer’s through a fundraising activity of their choice. “Playing for 12 hours straight wears on the body, and before it’s over, I’ll have to superglue my fingers to keep playing,” Ingram said. “Seeing the body break down while the mind is still working demonstrates the true power of the mind. I believe there will be a cure someday for this terrible disease that robs someone of their mind and memories.” Food and drinks will be available for purchase at Harvest Hall.

As it is officially summer, United Way of Tarrant County has launched its second annual Beat the Heat campaign, in which air conditioning units are collected to help those in need. For information about collection sites, visit the blogs at UnitedWayTarrant.org. UWTC is asking the community to donate working portable and window A/C units — and funds to purchase units — to help older adults and disabled individuals keep cool and reduce the risk of heat-related illnesses and fatalities during the summer months. To qualify to receive an AC unit, an individual must be a Tarrant County resident who is either 60 or older, disabled, or an active-duty military member or a veteran. The drive will continue thru Sat, Sep 30. New units can be purchased via the UWTC wishlists on Amazon and Walmart, and funds can be donated at UnitedWayTarrant.org/BeattheHeat.
