Ryleigh Modig to Host Benefit Concert for Second Chance Animal Services

EAST BROOKFIELD — Ryleigh Modig, who competed on The Voice, will host a benefit concert for Second Chance Animal Services at the Quarter Keg Pub in Charlton on Sunday, July 25 from 1 to 4 pm. Proceeds from the concert will help pets in need at the Second Chance shelter, where Modig began volunteering as a child.

Modig, a Spencer resident, brought her unique tone to this year’s 20th season of The Voice and quickly became a judge’s favorite, earning a triple steal before she was eliminated. When she returned to Massachusetts, she was determined to host a concert to make a difference in the lives of homeless animals.

“Ryleigh has always had a soft spot for animals. She was just 5 when she began accompanying her mother to volunteer at the shelter,” Second Chance Development Director Lindsay Doray said. “We were so excited when she approached us about hosting a concert for Second Chance so we can help even more pets.”

Second Chance helps more than 40,000 pets a year, providing access to veterinary care and a pet food pantry in addition to adoption services. “So many pets need help, and Ryleigh’s generosity is helping to make our programs possible,” Doray added.

Tickets are now on sale, and a variety of seating option are available, from tables on the deck to bring-your-own-chair seating on the court. Click here to purchase tickets.
