April Matthews of Willow Springs has won two tickets – and two passes to meet the band – for Saturday's concert at Koka Booth Ampitheatre featuring the B-52s.

NBC-17's Penn Holderness and Page Crawford will be at the concert and on stage as Band Together puts on the event to raise money for Urban Ministries of Wake County.

The money raised will support Urban Ministries' Open Door Clinic, which provides medical care to those in need. Band Together hopes to give more than $600,000 to the clinic.

The concert features the B-52s, Southern Culture on the Skids and BIG Something. 

The concert kicks off a summer-long tour by the B-52s, one of the South's biggest party bands with hits like "Love Shack" and "Rock Lobster."

The concert begins at 7 p.m.

General admission tickets are $29.50 in advance and $34.50 the day of the show.

Reserved seats are $54.50 in advance and $59.50 the day of the show.

You can purchase tickets in advance here.
