CVBS Free Concert Raises Funds to Aid Staunton Flood Victims
The Central Virginia Blues Society was pleased and excited to have organized a free concert on October 17 to support the Community Foundation of the Central Blue Ridge's (CFCBR) effort to aid Staunton residents whose homes and belongings were affected by August 8 flash flood. Pictured below is CFCBR Program Manager Mirian Burrows is show accepting a $1,200 check from CVBS, representing part of the money we were able to raise that day through the hard work and generous efforts of CVBS musicians.
We want to thank all of the CVBS musicians who donated their time and talent to make our October 17 flood relief effort a success, including -
Mojo Parker Band
Kiz Carter and Wave Milor
Low B Band (with special guest Alan Ponton)
Danny Goodson Band
Ken Farmer & the Authenticators
We also thank photographer Bill Reckert for taking so many great pictures of the event, only a few of which can be shown here.
And most importantly, we want to acknowledge the leadership of CVBS President Rick "King Gypsy" Sheeley and the our CVBS volunteers for setting up the event, along with the many friends and supporters who joined us to make the day such a wonderful success.
