Bonus gazebo concert this weekend will benefit St. Jude

12 Sep

Anyone who loves good music and good causes will want to hear about this weekend’s concert at the gazebo.

I’m calling it a “bonus” concert because it’s not one of the regular Friday-night gazebo concerts sponsored by the Webster BID, but a brand new event developed by the very popular Red Hot and Blue Band, featuring Village of Webster resident Doug Pucci.

Red Hot and Blue will be performing at the village gazebo on North Ave. on Sunday afternoon Sept. 18 at 3 p.m., to benefit St. Jude Childrens’ Hospital.

Pucci told me the band decided to host a St. Jude benefit concert for a couple of reasons. For starters, his daughter-in-law worked as a nurse for St. Jude for several years, and during that time the band grew close to the organization. But mostly, it’s just a terrific cause that everyone can get behind, especially this month, Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

The band’s Facebook page explained,

Thanks to you donors like you, no family ever receives a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago.

Admission is free; donations in any amount will be taken during the show. The band will also have t-shirts and stickers for sale, with all profits going straight to St. Jude. If you can’t make the show, you can also made donations directly by clicking here and then the “Find Tickets” button.

So grab your chairs, blankets and coolers, and enjoy some sweet, late-summer music by the Red Hot and Blue Band this Sunday. (Remember, the Bills aren’t playing until Monday. You’ll need something to do.)

    Hi! Yes, my daughter-in-law was an NP at St Jude for 8+ years, so I enjoyed going to Memphis and visiting St Jude on every trip! SJCRH became very near and dear to us, so Red Hot and Blue takes donations at all our shows for St Jude, and seeing that September is Child Cancer Awareness Month, we decided to ask The Webster BID and The Village
    of Webster if we could do a free benefit concert !!! Hope to see y’all on Sunday Sept 18th at 3:00! Thanks! Doug
