$500,000 raised for the American Red Cross.

February 22, 2014

As you may or may not know, my good friend Jody Weyers of American Red Cross – Northeast Wisconsin Region, danced in the Dancing with Our Stars for the American Red Cross on Valentine’s weekend. She not only killed it, but won Peoples Choice Award. It was an amazing night to say the least. 

When Jody started her adventure over four months ago, she never thought it would have the impact that it has had on her life. Her goal was to raise $40,000 through our 40 for 40 concert held in early February. Well, I’m thrilled to announce the event was a huge success and raised just over $54,000. I am humbled and honored to be a part of the event. And, I am very proud of Jody.

Of course, an intricate part of any successful event is to have talented photographers capture its magic and Jenna Cornell did it with perfection. You can watch this cool photo slideshow Jenna put together of her photography featuring my song “You Gotta Love”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyXPmSfiRAs . She also combined it with a write up about the concert: http://bit.ly/VirtualMusicCafe

Finally, the Dancing with Our Stars for the American Red Cross raised $500,660 in total. That is an amazing amount of funds, which will be used to help those in our local area.
