Bay Street Theater is presenting a benefit concert to raise funds for Sag Harbor’s Volunteer Ambulance and Fire Departments on Thursday, Jan. 19 at 7 p.m., featuring the music of the Nancy Atlas Project, Gene Casey and the Lone Sharks and the Hoodoo Loungers, in the wake of the major fire in the village last month.

Tickets to the benefit concert, titled “A Night of Thanks,” are $50 per person and are available at the box office at 631.725.9500, online at, and at the door the night of the event if tickets are not sold out. The box office is open Tuesday – Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 .pm.

The concert is in honor of the courageous work done by the Sag Harbor Fire and Ambulance Departments, as well as the police and fire departments that worked diligently on Main Street during the major fire in Sag Harbor on Dec. 16.

Bay Street Theater is donating the theater and staff services, and the musicians are donating their time and musical talents for the concert. All ticket and raffle proceeds will be given to these two worthy departments, made up of volunteers from the community who work to keep all safe throughout the year.

There will be a special raffle in the lobby, with items and prizes donated from local retailers and restaurants. The proceeds from the raffle will also go to these worthy first responders.

Benefits by Bay Street is a program of Bay Street Theater & Sag Harbor Center for the Arts that periodically provides the theater space and staffing to help others in need. Past benefits included events for the typhoon in the Philippines, the earthquake in Haiti, and the tsunami in Japan. Bay Street has raised more than $20,000 at these events.
