Safari Sam's to host benefit concert on Oct. 7, 2007 featuring a performance by Tom Kenny, the voice of SpongeBob SquarePants and his band, SpongeBob & The Hi-Seas

Top musical talent from around Los Angeles (including a rare appearance by SpongeBob & The Hi-Seas) will perform at venerable Hollywood club Safari Sam's on Sunday, October 7 for an all-ages show to benefit 21-month-old cancer patient Izabel Vega and her parents, Pablo Vega and Barbara Konwinski of Montevideo, Minnesota.

Izabel has recently been diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma/PNET, a rare cancer that affects bone and soft tissue. All admission proceeds will go directly to Izabel and her family to help get them through this difficult time. A "donation jar" will also be circulated inside Safari Sam's for further contributions and information for making donations directly into a family fund will be announced.
