BenFest: A Benefit for Ben Comfort

July 9, 2017  ·  Sunday * 3-8pm * $10 suggested donation

Our good friend Ben Comfort took a nasty dive from a ladder a few months ago, and while he went down, the medical bills went up!

We’re throwing down a mighty benefit – Comfort for Ben, a “Ben”efit for Ben – whatever clever way we try to say it, the goal is the same. Come show Ben some love and help with medical expenses all while grooving out with some of your favorite musicians and bands, including Tuesday’s Gone, the Ultimate Tribute to Legendary Southern Rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd featuring our very own Clark Stern.

  • Good Rocking Sam  3-3:45
  • The Josh Preslar Band  4-4:45
  • Tuesday’s Gone  5:5:45
  • Followed by an OPEN BLUES JAM with Clark, Chuck Cotton, Terry Wiley til 8pm

Ben’s friend Jay Schwantes recently set up a Go Fund Me page to help with Ben’s medical, rehab and general support while he’s out of work recuperating.

My good friend Ben Comfort is a guy that’s always helping other people. For the past 15 years, Ben’s been my go-to guy for countless projects and repairs.

Ben recently had ladder accident ( as he puts it: a rapid unscheduled decent) and was treated at Duke Hospital for a broken back and broken foot. He’s recovering well, but with a long road still to go.

All of us who know Ben understand he depends on his work to support himself, and I know Ben could use our help with his expenses, now that he is unable to work.

Please join me and help Ben see his way through these difficult times, and donate whatever you can for our good friend.

We’ll have a laptop set up to take donations directly to the Go Fund Me Helping Ben page if you’d rather give that way.  Can’t be there, but want to show your support:  https://www.gofundme.com/HelpingBen
