DULUTH, MN (Northland's NewsCenter)---Bridgeman's Ice Cream in Duluth is stirring up a sweet donation for the Fon-du-Lac Community.

Hundreds jammed to live music from Duluth homegrown band, Split Rock at a flood relief fundraiser Saturday

Organizers hoped to raise $5,000 at the event.

The money will be donated to the Fond du Lac Community Club.

"I was hoping everyone would come out and take a break from cleaning and scrubbing, to get out and have a good time and visit with their friends," Jim Shelton, owner of Bridgeman's Ice Cream Shop said. "They are helping to raise some money to help those out that need it."

Local businesses donated food and refreshments at the concert.

The event runs until 7:00 p.m.
