Events to benefit the Misquamicut area, which sustained significant damage during Superstorm Sandy, are scheduled.
Bash for the Beach II, at the Knickerbocker, on December 7 from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m., featuring the music of Never Enuff, Equinox, Hope Road, The Beach Band, and Terry Sylvester of the Hollies. Tickets are $15.

The Misquamicut Beach Benefit is set for December 9 from 2 to 9 p.m. at The Malted Barley, Perks & Corks and The Twisted Vine, on High Street, Westerly. The all-ages event will feature live music, food from local chefs, a cash bar, silent auctions, art sales and a raffle. Donations of any size will be collected at the door. Donations of $20 or more will qualify donors for a chance to win a grand prize.

All funds raised will be used to make grants to businesses struggling with losses not covered by insurance. Also, the association’s fund is being used to replace damaged equipment used for a host of events such as movies on the beach and two festivals.
