Call for Help from the Empty Can Band – Benefit for Kathy – Sat, Feb 21st in Prestbury
Hey Empty Can Band fans! We hope you had a very merry holiday season and a happy new year!
We need your help. We’re having a benefit for our good friend Kathy Rosheisen who’s been battling stage four cancer.
The benefit is set for Saturday, February 21st at 6:30 p.m. at the Cheshire Club, 15 Winthrop New Road, Sugar Grove, IL 60554 in Prestbury.
The benefit will feature a performance by the Empty Can Band and friends. It will also feature heavy appetizers and refreshments. We plan to hold a silent auction and several raffles throughout the evening to help raise funds to help offset some of Kathy’s considerable expenses. The entry cost will be $10 and will include food, refreshments and the band performance.
It’s our hope that this benefit will do two important things: 1) lift Kathy’s spirits up and 2) knock her soaring hospital bills down.
So many of us are blessed with good health, a loving family and great friends. Right now Kathy has the family and friends going for her and a lot of prayers and medical support to help with her health, but it’s a daily struggle.
We know how powerful it can be when people come together as a community of friends, neighbors, family and supporters – and there are several ways in which you can participate in this specific event. The first and most important would be to show up – so save the date! Our second call-out would be for any silent auction items – things like sporting event or concert tickets, gift baskets, sports or music memorabilia (esp. autographed items), certificates from dentists, hair dressers, nail techs, message therapists, and other professionals, etc. for donation to the silent auction. Third would be if you’re willing to volunteer some time that day/night to help with set-up or tear-down or a variety of other tasks.
I hope you will consider showing your support in one of the three ways outlined above, or if you can’t make it to the benefit but would still like to help, we’d love it if you would consider making a donation to help ease the burden of Kathy’s medical expenses. Please contact me via email if you’re interested in helping one of our best friends.
