somdblues2014Chesapeake Bay Events, Inc. (CBE) is pleased to announce that it has selected Safe Harbor, Inc. and Special Love, Inc. as its primary beneficiaries of the 2nd Annual Southern Maryland Blues Festival.

Safe Harbor, located in Prince Frederick, Maryland, provides help to battered women and children in need of essential services during an extremely difficult period in their life.  It further helps those families to become self-sufficient by providing counseling and training.   Linda Kelley, Chairman of Safe Harbor, Inc. added We appreciate the generosity of Chesapeake Bay Events in helping us to increase awareness about domestic violence, and to provide essential services to abused women and their children — Because it shouldn’t hurt to go home.

Special Love, Inc. operates a summer camp in Leonardtown, MD for the siblings of children who have cancer and other life threatening illnesses.  The siblings of children with cancer are often a forgotten group; they suffer not only the pain of watching their brother or sister struggle with illness, but very often receive much less attention than most kids because of the upsetting nature of this disease on families.  Camp offers them a respite and an opportunity to enjoy a week with kids going through the same thing that they are.  

Both charities will have the opportunity to sell at the festival, collect donations from the attendees, receive all proceeds from a guitar raffle and receive a portion of all of the net proceeds from the event.

“We are extremely pleased to be able to support the community while at the same time bringing first class national entertainment to Southern Maryland,” stated Don Hooker, Promoter.  Hooker and the event coordinator, Sarah Petska are both residents of Calvert County in Southern Maryland.
