Plugged In, an organization that teaches local teenagers how to play in a rock band, will showcase the culmination of their students’ 14 weeks of lessons in a three-day benefit concern in Needham.

The concert, which will feature 41 student bands, will be held June 14 through June 16 at Needham Town Hall, located on Highland Avenue.

Proceeds from the show will benefit the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, which seeks to give children with serious illnesses a fun, normal summer camp experience. Actor Paul Newman founded the camp in 1988 in Connecticut.

The Plugged In concert will take place June 14 from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.; June 15 from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.; and June 16 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Concert t-shirts and CDs will also be on sale.

Tickets for the event cost $5 for students, $10 for seniors, and $15 for adults. Tickets are sold at the door only, and can be bought with cash or check.

For more information on the event and the organization, visit Plugged In's website and Facebook event page.
