Tom Ryan, a member of the Parole Annapolis Rotary Club and concert coordinator, is excited to have this band on board. “The first concert was a huge success. We are looking forward to Higher Hands performing for the second concert. If you have never seen them, you won’t want to miss them! The Parole Annapolis Rotary Club is proud to collaborate with the Artists 4 Amy Foundation. Artists 4 Amy and Rotary’s causes are very similar; to help those that are in need. By putting on this series of concerts we hope to provide fantastic live music to Annapolis while assisting a truly worthy organization.”

Caring for a sick child places tremendous emotional, physical and financial strain on a family.

The Artists 4 Amy Foundation assists families who are caring for these ill children with “real life” expenses that insurance does not cover. Expenses like household bill relief – mortgages, rent, utilities. The assistance also includes co-pays, auto repairs, prescriptions, babysitting and child care expenses, medical equipment, tolls, parking, and more. Tony and Sylvia Poore,founders of the organization, learned firsthand that during a health crisis, everything goes up but your income. Often times parents end up losing their jobs because they had to choose between work and their child’s needs. “After losing our daughter, Amy, to cancer, we wanted to create a non-bureaucratic, no red tape and most importantly, a non-embarrassing way for people in need to obtain financial assistance.

All proceeds from the event will benefit Artists 4 Amy and the Parole Rotary Foundation, in keeping with the theme of “Helping sick kids, one family at a time.”

Tickets are $15  and can be purchased by visiting www.artists4amy.org or by calling Tom Ryan at 443-837-6178 or email at [email protected].

The third concert will be on April 13th, so mark your calendars!
