Empty Cans Provide More Help to Benefits
Hey gang, we have a few benefits coming up this summer – including this Sunday, July 8th at Peck Road Farm at 11:30 a.m. – we are playing the Emma Shines On event – 4038 Kaneville Road, Geneva. Emma Mebane pass-away suddenly last year at this time after returning from her first year at college. This is a benefit to celebrate her life that is open to the public. It includes a fun run/walk in her honor. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. The Empty Can Band will perform from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. It’s suppose to cool down by Sunday, so come on out of the air conditioning for a few hours – put on your sunscreen, bring some cool soft drinks and your chairs.
On Friday, July 13th, the Empty Can Band will perform at the annual Boob Bash to benefit the Susan G. Komen 3-day walk for Breast Cancer – specifically raising funds for Team Saving 2nd Base – Nora Van Ham’s team. Nora is our show-closer as most of you know – “Mercedes Benz” ring a bell? We go all out for this show as we are typically very inspired. Set for 7:00 p.m.at the Aurora Turners Club (1335 Mitchell Road, Aurora, IL)
And just added to the summer benefits list, a Few Empty Cans will perform on Saturday, August 11th at Lobsterfest, a benefit for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Davy G will be emceeing that show as well. Our friends, Cattle Prod, are also on the bill. Festivities start around 3:00 p.m., check back for a firmer schedule.
