A couple of years ago I was honored to be part of an all-star benefit extravaganza for my friend (and Nikki‘s uncle) Ron Young. Besides being a hell of a great guy, Ron is one of the most important names in the local music scene. As a singer/songwriter, and as a music journalist (which automatically makes him a historian as well), he’s been a part of this scene for a long, long time.
A few years ago, Ron was diagnosed with cancer, and so Forever Young was born as a fundraiser to help cover the costs of his treatment. The event was a huge success (raising over $10,000), and a big help to him.
Ron’s cancer-free now, which is an incredible blessing. But those costs are still around. So, tomorrow, from 2pm-10pm, Forever Young returns to Sam’s Burger Joint with another stellar lineup of performers:
Seriously, click on that poster to enlarge it, and just look at that lineup. You can’t miss a gathering like that. Or the raffle. Or the silent auction. Or the MCs: Chris Casseb, Steven O. Sellers, and Nikki Young. Or the cost of admission: only $10.
All of that said, I hope you can all come out to show your support for Ron. Even if you can’t, if you’d still like to help out, message me for the details.
Thank you as always for your support. Please share this post, share the poster, do whatever you can to spread the word.
Hope to see you tomorrow!
