The West Virginia Winter Music Festival Musicians Fund, 501(c)3, held 2 flood benefit events this past July. On Saturday, July 2nd, partnering with the WBCCI (Airstream Trailer Club) they raised $1000 with the Airstream Concert Band performance (pictured below) on the lawn of New River Community and Technical College.
On Saturday, July 25th, the WVWMF held a Flood Benefit Concert. 28 bands and musicians volunteered their time to perform across 5 venues in downtown Lewisburg. We raised $2200!!! (Rootz Rock concert at Hill & Holler pictured above).
The need is great and the West Virginia Music Festival Musician Fund hopes to help ease the strain many musicians have endured during these trying times. All money raised from these two events will go directly to musicians, music students and their families affected by the June 23rd flooding in Greenbrier County. Thank you all who participated in both events. You’re all true gifts to sister and brother musicians and the community. If you would like to make a donation, please complete the application for aid at wvmusicfestival.org.
