98° announced a special show at the Aronoff Center, December 15th at 4:00pm with proceeds going to help Elizabeth “Ellie” Richardson. In a random act of violence on Thanksgiving morning, Ellie Richardson, an employee of Nick and Drew’s Lachey’s bar, was shot on a street nearby. She is currently in the hospital, improving and in strong spirits.
Upon hearing of the incident, Nick and Drew Lachey immediately took to social media to rally their hometown and help their friend in need. In addition to donating to a YouCaring fundraising page that was set up for her, they wanted to do more.
The band 98° - Nick Lachey, Drew Lachey, Justin Jeffre, Jeff Timmons – all have deep roots in Cincinnati and collectively decided to add an additional show to their tour with the proceeds going to Ellie Richardson to aid in her recovery.
If you are not able to attend the concert, you can still help by donating.
