Ten local nonprofit organizations received a total of $24,815 from the recent All-Baltimore concert by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.

Each group that was part of the benefit received full value of the tickets it sold. A total of 2,243 tickets were sold by: Chesapeake AIDS Foundation Inc.; Friends of the Family; the Fund for Educational Excellence; Lois J. Wright Memorial Concert Series Inc.; Maryland Associates for Dyslexic Adults and Youth Inc.; Women's Housing Coalition; the League for the Handicapped; the Holocaust & War Victims Tracing & Information Center (American Red Cross); Northwest Baltimore Corporation, and the Schapiro Training and Employment Program.

The All-Baltimore concert was created by the BSO in 1986 through a $1 million endowment gift from Baltimore Gas and Electric Co.
