The final totals are in for our 2019 fund raising campaign for the Fisher Houses of North Carolina!
We want to extend our heartfelt congratulations and appreciation to all the people who sponsored the many talented and giving musicians who played at this year’s event.
All the pledges are in, we’ve tallied it up, and we are VERY pleased to announce we raised $12,500!!!
All that money will stay right here in North Carolina where it will do a LOT of good!
In addition we’d like to thank our very first major corporate sponsor Golden Corral for their generous contribution of $2,500 making our 2019 total:
All that money was raised for a GREAT cause and all who attended experienced an emotional day full of powerful fellowship and beautiful music!
As if THAT were not enough, we had the great privilege to honor Veterans and First Responders on the hour EVERY hour by wrapping them in our custom-made red, white, and blue Marathon Jam Quilts Of Honor, and folks, if you’ve never witnessed that ceremony, we URGE you to attend next year!!
As always, we want to thank American Legion Post 6 of Chapel Hill for their continuing generous support.
In all honesty, we were worried the inclement weather this year would hurt attendance, but we are pleased to report that did NOT stop our loyal Musicians OR the MANY spectators who came to cheer for the brave Veterans and First Responders throughout what was, and ALWAYS is, a truly great day.
Please know our mission of Curatus Per Music (Healing Through Music) continues throughout the year as Marathon Jam Hospital Volunteers interact with and entertain Veterans in VA Hospitals in Fayetteville, Durham, Kernersville and Salisbury.
And in 2019, with the help of former Chapel Hill Fire Chief and Marathon Jam Vice President Dan Jones and Chapel Hill Chief of Police Chris Blue we intend to extend our outreach to more First Responders who might need the support as well.
Friends, we have SEEN again and again the power of music to help and to HEAL.
THAT is our mission.
Thank you so much for your help and support.
