All proceeds from the concert will benefit the newly formed Scott Hutchison Fund, which Scott’s brother, Grant Hutchison, describes as follows: “The Scott Hutchison Fund has been set up in memory of our beloved Scott. It will form the basis for a Mental Health Charity to be set up fully in the coming months. We hope to be able to help others the way Scott did with kindness, empathy and hope.”
Tickets go on sale this Friday, Nov. 2. They can be found here.
