Dashboard Confessional's Chris Carrabba Hosting Benefit Honoring Memory of Lynn University Students Lost in Haiti

Boca Raton's Lynn University was hit especially hard by the January 12 Haiti earthquake -- four students and four professors who were tragically killed there while providing care as part of the Journey of Hope course. Dashboard Confessional's Chris Carrabba, who lives locally, decided to do his part to honor the fallen members of the Lynn community with a series of concerts between April 30 and May 1. Proceeds from the two-night, three-show event will go to a special scholarship fund.
