Chuck Cotton: Raise the Roof Fundraiser

June 24, 2018  ·  Sunday * 4-8pm * $10 Suggested Donation

Musical participants to be announced!
On June 24th at the Blue Note Grill, our music family will do what we proudly do best – come together for one of our own. We’ll be hosting a benefit for our good friend, Chuck Cotton. Chuck’s home of 30 years was left uninhabitable after the recent tornados in Greensboro. The home was not insured. Imagine yourself in the same situation…

Many of you know Chuck as the cool cat on the drums at many of the BNG jams or perhaps you’ve seen him play somewhere around the world with the legendary, Bob Margolin. Those of us who know him personally will tell you that he is not merely an incomparable musician and vocalist, Chuck is one of the kindest and most humble people that you’re likely to meet.

Quite a few musicians will be donating their time and energy to the cause. In addition to a fun day of music and dancing, we’ll have a silent “art” auction. If you’re the creative type (painting, photography, pottery, woodwork, jewelry, glass work…seriously anything unique that you’ve created – no mass produced pieces please) and have a piece or two that you’d care to donate, we’ll happily welcome it. Think outside the box, folks. Jimmy has even donated dance lessons 😊

Many of you have heard Chuck play dozens of times without having paid a cent. Please consider paying it forward, folks. I am the contact for the art auction. You know where to find me.

P.S. I’ll happily accept gift certificates for local businesses as well.
