A local band will be performing this weekend to raise money for a veteran's charity organization.
Shock Treatment, a local punk band that's been in Madison for nearly a decade, is performing at the Key West Shrimp House on Saturday to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project, an organization that provides assistance and creates programs for wounded military service members.
Bob Courtney, a member of Shock Treatment, said all of the band's performances have been to raise money for charity.
"We've raised thousands of dollars for local charities," Courtney said.
The owners of the restaurant, Scott and Susan Koerner, are hosting the event and will be donating a portion of the sales to the charity.
Scott Koerner chose the charity because of a friend of his friend, Walt Sexton, who was a veteran who passed away recently.
The mission of the Wounded Warrior Project is to raise awareness and enlist the public's aid for the needs of injured service members, to help injured service members aid and assist each other, and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members.
Courtney said there isn't a set fundraising goal for the evening.
Shock Treatment members are Mark Bear, Davey Harmon, Dale Davis, Curt Vandebur, Jeff Corbin, Koerner and Courtney.
"The band is comprised of seven guys who all went to high school together," Courtney said. "We've been playing music together on and off for about a decade."
The Key West Shrimp House will maintain normal evening hours Saturday, and Shock Treatment will take the stage at 10:30 p.m.
