Partners in Sustainable Development International (PSDI), a nonprofit organization located in St. Louis focused on poverty eradication in Bangladesh, is hosting a benefit concert on Saturday, August 25 at The Pageant. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the concert starts at 8:00 p.m.
Funds raised at this event will support PSDI’s mission to promote and support poverty eradication among extremely poor families in rural areas of Bangladesh using a holistic model that involves and supports the family in their uplift. PSDI’s work in Bangladesh is carried out through their sister organization, the Poverty Eradication Program (PEP). Over 325,000 people have been lifted out of poverty since PEP’s work began in the late 1980’s. Twenty-one million people in Bangladesh live in extreme poverty on less than $2.00/day.

“We are excited for the opportunity to share our mission with a new audience and give them the ability to make a real difference in the world, one family at a time,” stated Br. Steve Glodek, Board Chair.
The concert is a celebration of the original Concert for Bangladesh organized by George Harrison of The Beatles on August 1, 1971 at Madison Square Garden in New York and will feature the Liverpool Legends, a popular Beatles tribute band.
Liverpool Legends promises “The Complete Beatles Experience!” The band was formed by Louis Harrison, George Harrison’s sister, and is the only Beatles Tribute Band with a direct family link to the Beatles. "Each member of the group is so close to the originals that I often feel like I'm transported back in time with the lads. These are exactly the kind of fun loving quality musicians that my brother George would have loved to hang out with,” says Harrison. They have headlined at Carnegie Hall and at the Rose Bowl, have had their own show in Branson, Missouri for twelve years, and have sold out stadiums around the world.
