Blues in the Schools Benefit Coming to Big Cities Lounge Saturday August 18th

Our Fall Blues in the Schools programs need financial help. We need money to fund our fall efforts so we are having a benefit concert. Unfortunately, at press time we don’t have the acts lined up yet. We will send out email and post the info on our website when it is finalized.
Some ideas for the benefit include a reprise of the Rockford Guitar Shootout (remember that great event from 2005?) or perhaps have some of our former BITS artists come out and do a show. In any case, we will have a benefit show to help us raise money!
The benefit show will be at Big Cities Lounge on Saturday, August 18th at 8 PM. Our benefit night for our Blues in the Schools (BITS) efforts begins with music. Cover is $10, 100% of which goes out to BITS. A silent auction and a 50-50 raffle will also be held to help raise money, 100% of which also goes to our BITS programs. Come out and support this worthy cause. Advanced tickets can be gotten from Steve Jones; call 815-234-3118 for tickets and more information. We will need a little help from members that night, too. Come out and support the blues and support our BITS! We can’t do it without you. And stay tuned for the lineup of guests!
