The event spearheaded by SOCHE and Five Rivers MetroParks was the brainchild of Felita LaRock, a former lead vocalist for the U.S. Air Force Band of Flight.
The Dayton Foundation, RTA, Five Rivers MetroParks, Key Ads and Cox Media Group Ohio were among the presenters.
Storm Center 7's McCall Vrydaghs served as emcee for part of the event, which included performance by the Community Choir, Vince and The Fellas, Jamie Suttle, The Sinclair Community College Faculty Jazz Combo, Moment's Notice and The Dayton Funk All-Stars.
Barlow said $2,698 was raised by cash donations for the Greater Dayton Disaster Relief Fund established by the Dayton Foundation.
Barlow said the amount does not include money donated electronically.
The Dayton Foundation recently announced that the Greater Dayton Disaster Relief Fund was nearing the million dollar donation mark.

Those funds will be added to the Dayton Area Brewers Tornado Relief Fund through the Dayton Foundation, which is affiliated with the Greater Dayton Disaster Relief Fund, a spokesperson for the Dayton Ale Trail Facebook page said.
“The biggest thing is thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who helped,” Barlow said.
Concert-goers donated money, as did food truck owners. A masseuse donated her tips.
