BOISE -- With the hope of preventing another tragic child drowning - local musicians, the YMCA and the family of Mason Goldberg are teaming up tonight to promote water safety.

Mason Goldberg, who was just five years old, drowned on July 10th during a family gathering in Star.

In his memory, Mason's family is launching a water safety campaign with the goal of providing swimming lessons for families who can't afford them on their own.

To raise money for the Mason Goldberg Foundation, Hannah's in downtown Boise is hosting "Rock for Water Safety," with a silent auction and live music from Pinto Bennett, Bill Coffey, Steve Fulton, Cherie Buckner-Webb and several other artists.

It starts at 7 p.m. tonight, and continues until closing time.
