A friend of mine's coworker Bill Morris, AKA Cap'n Sunshine of the SS Marshmallow, is playing a charity concert at Harper's Ferry this Saturday, December 22 (which is coincidentally the winter solstice). Bill is a member of one of the four bands taking part in this charity show, with the money raised going to offset the medical expenses, develop learning programs, and support social events for children undergoing long-term rehab at the Franciscan Hospital for Children.
In the past, donations supported programs such as a children's carnival, environmentally controlled trips to Boston, visits to Fenway to meet the Sox, theatrical and musical performances, and more.
This is your chance to help some kids out, and listen to some rockin' music. You can find more information at the Harper's Ferry website. Click on 'Shows', and scroll on down to the 22nd. Hope to see you there!
