A benefit concert on Sunday at the Rongovian Embassy in Trumansburg will feature an afternoon-long lineup of great musicians to help neighbor Teri Fallon with the expenses of fighting cancer.
Teri was diagnosed with stage 3S Hodgkins Lymphoma in April of this year after months of illnesses and visits to specialists, and according to a GoFundMe page set up by a friend, “she is confident that she can turn a favorable prognosis into a certain win.” The GoFundMe page has already raised over $4,900 towards a $10,000 goal, to help cover co-pays, deductibles, and travel expenses that aren’t covered by insurance.
Sunday’s family-friendly lineup features a reunion of the Newman Brothers, the Blind Spots, Binghamton’s Adam Ate the Apple, and Brian Vollmer & Claire Byrne of Driftwood.
Quite a few raffle tickets have been donated by local merchants and individuals, including two tickets to 2017’s Finger Lakes GrassRoots Festival, a case of Damiani Wine Cellars wine, a Jasmine Acoustic S-35 Takamine guitar, a three-massage package from the Center for Pain Relief, a one-month certificate to Ultimate Athletics, a $100 gift certificate to Hazelnut Kitchen, a Marsha Sheavly painting, a toy basket from Alphabet Soup, a $50 gift certificate and an hour of bowling at Atlas Bowl, a $50 gift certificate to American Crafts, a $50 Ithaca Carshare certificate, pottery from Handwork, two $30 gift certificates to Full Plate Collective, a $25 gift certificate to Stonecat Cafe, jewelry from Wreckhouse, a lottery ticket bundle, and additional artwork and items to be announced.
Doors open at 1pm on Sunday, September 25 for the show, which is scheduled from 2-6pm at the Rongovian Embassy, at 1 West Main Street in Trumansburg. A $15 donation is suggested.
