  LACEY – The third in a trilogy of fundraising concerts brought in more than $5,000 for charity.

  Stomp Out Animal Abuse Round 3 was a day of punk and hardcore acts at William Hebrew Park. The money was split between Popcorn Park Zoo, PuppyKittyNYCity, Bridges to Safety Animal Rescue, Wolfpack077 T.A.R. and Helping 4 Paws At A Time pet food pantry, said organizer Jay Baluski.

  More than 300 people attended the event, held outdoors because that’s the only way to have safe gatherings during the pandemic. A $5 donation was asked, and people were told to wear masks.

  The following bands were in the line-up: Threat2Society, Departed, DJ Jah Measles and Jay Boxcar, Gloves Off, Silence Equals Death, Useless, Faded Line, and Grimthinker.

  Previous shows also raised thousands for animal charities. As the weather is getting colder, this will likely be the last show until spring.
