Hello everyone! Our 2nd benefit concert is in the books, where we had a tremendous night at the “Dead Phish Allman Bros Tribute for the the Foundation Fighting Blindness!” I had the honor of organizing this event that took place on Saturday November 10th. What I learned as much as anything, is that the team of people involved was the key to making this such a special night! At the end of this, I once again list some of the people that we give thanks to for making this happen. As many of you know, I’ve always been passionate about live music. Over the course of my 24 years of service in eyecare, one of my dreams was to organize a benefit concert for a great cause within the field. We wound up raising almost $3,800 for the Foundation Fighting Blindness, breaking last year’s total of ~$3,000! The Dirty Grass Players started off the evening with a fantastic Grateful Dead / Allman Bros themed set! Then Phoam – A Tribute to Phish followed with a spectacular Phish set! We had the one and only Jack Thomas on lights for the 2nd year in a row! The Foundation Fighting Blindness’s national headquarters is based in Columbia Maryland. They were founded in 1971, with a mission to drive research providing preventions, treatments & cures for people affected by blinding retinal diseases.
