Tickets are now on sale for the 2018 Project Blues Review, a private benefit on August 18, 2018, that will bring together some of the country’s most renowned blues artists for a night of musical healing and transformative fundraising.
Project Blues, a 100% volunteer-staffed 501(c)(3) founded in 2011, produces the annual event that raises money for LifeCare Alliance’s Columbus Cancer Clinic, which provides diagnostic testing and treatment, plus food, wigs, prosthesis, and transportation to those affected by cancer.
“The idea for this event sprung from the fellowship and healing in blues music,” said Project Blues founder Mike Berichon. “Cancer devastates everything in a person’s life, and that is where we come in. Through Project Blues, we connect the dollars raised with the people who desperately need them.”
Since its inception, the organization has raised more than $150,000 for The Columbus Cancer Clinic, which equates to more than 1,500 mammograms. Last year, Project Blues Review raised $30,000 and drew nearly 400 people to the LifeCare Alliance Center. This year, the event will feature a well-known roster of artists headlined by The Jimmie Vaughan Trio and hosted by Jonn Del Toro Richardson. Other musicians performing includes:
• Bob Margolin Blues Band
• The Texas Horns
• Jonn Del Toro Richardson
• The opening act, Local Blues Sensation Drivin’ Home, featuring Sean Carney and Shaun
All proceeds from the benefit go directly to the LifeCare Alliance’s, The Columbus Cancer Clinic. Tickets for the event can be purchased at www.projectblues.org.
