The Capitol Hill community continues to fan out in support of the employees and owners of Frager’s Hardware, the neighborhood landmark that suffered a devastating fire on Wednesday.

On June 12, Hill Center at the Old Naval Hospital (921 Pennsylvania Ave. SE) and the D.C. Jazz Festival will host a benefit for the Friends of Frager’s fund. At 7 p.m., Hill Center will host a free discussion with Washington-based composer/drummer Nasar Abadey, leader of the jazz group SUPERNOVA. At 8 p.m., Abadey will perform for a ticketed crowd ($15 in advance, $20 at the door), and proceeds from the performance will go to the Frager’s crew.

D.C. Jazz Fest runs through June 16 at venues across the city.

Correction 3:20 p.m.

An earlier version of this post listed the wrong date for the event. It is set for June 12.
