Giving back, when we can

I KNOW WE have posted about this before, but lately we've been getting a ton of benefit requests.

We are always glad to put a poster on the window and plug the event on What To Do In Quincy, Sheryl's Facebook page. We know every fundraiser and charity event is important. We'd love to give everybody a lot of money.

We can't.

At Second String Music, we believe in giving back. We also believe in a fundraising budget, and sticking to it.

We are helping out at the Liz Bentley Honor Flight fundraiser Saturday at the American Legion. Since we do a lot with Six String Heroes, it's a natural. Liz and her family are great people so we are glad to help. I'm even playing at 3:30 p.m. Saturday at the event, at the American Legion, 116 N. Eighth Street.

We are hosting our own event Saturday for Six String Heroes, click here for more. Don't feel like you have to donate or give anything, just come on down and hang out!

We just had to tell a couple of gals we couldn't donate to their cancer victim fundraiser. I feel awful for the family and I hope they have a great event, it's just not possible for us right now.

It never hurts to ask us for help, and we will if we can.
