Monday night you have a chance to help a local organization's relief efforts in tornado-ravaged Moore, Oklahoma.

A 6 p.m. benefit concert in the Kansas City Power & Light District will feature seven rock bands. All donations will go straight to Heart to Heart International’s disaster fund.

The concert costs $10 at the door or $20 for VIP, which includes two drinks.

Heart to Heart is one of several local organizations helping Moore residents get back on their feet.

Seven bands have volunteered to play in today's rock concert including: the Beautiful Bodies, Six Percent, Antennas Up, Not a Planet, She's a Keeper, Ghost Town Heart and Cover Me Badd.

Kansas City's music community created the organization "Midcoast Cares" two years ago to help with relief for Joplin tornado victims.

A concert then raised more than $10,000.

Organizers hope to raise more than $15,000 Monday night to send to Oklahoma.
