Songwriters for Survivors is having a benefit this Saturday at Pablo's on Market Street in Athens, Alabama. If you are in the area please join us from 10:00 AM until 5:00 PM. There will be constant music performed by singers, songwriters and maybe a stand-up comic or two. I hear there may be some artists available selling their artwork for the cause!
This benefit is for the Sexton family who lost everything during the April 2011 tornadoes. Mrs. Sexton was pregnant at that time but later delivered a healthy baby. Michael Sexton, father of this family, has been diagnosed with terminal liver cancer and is not expected to be with his family much longer. They have an immediate need for our love and support.
So, drop in during the day, bring a cake for silent auction, enjoy the music and make a donation for this family. We would love to see you there!
Songwriters For Survivors has had several benefits at different locations in North Alabama because the destruction was wide-spread with loss of life and property. This is an ongoing need to help rebuild and heal. There is another BIG event planned for May 12th with a songwriting contest and songwriter's rounds all day! More about this later!
Songwriters for Survivors is a collaboration of songwriters and musicians in the Tennessee Valley of Alabama. Our goal is to organize benefit concerts to raise funds that will help meet the needs of the citizens of North Alabama who have been devastated by various disasters. Songwriters For Survivors is a non-profit organization. All funds collected will go directly to this family. Donations may be made through PayPal at http://sw4s.org/.
