Alyssa Weiser-Lily (Alyssa Lily) is definitely a fighter. Two years ago the blues community first became aware of her fight with cancer and the friendship between her family and award winning musician Lisa Mann. Alyssa continues with her battle, having gone through surgeries, chemotherapy and infections, and now she and her family need financial assistance to not only help with her medical needs, but also to keep their daily lives in order.
And that is where the local blues and roots community is once again stepping up to help out. Please keep the date Sunday, March 1 open and make plans to be at the Trails End Saloon (at the corner of !4th & Main in downtown Oregon City) starting at 2:00 pm. A full day’s worth of music is planned and at only a suggested donation of $10.00 (but you will not be turned away if you’re unable to afford this amount) you’re not going to find a better spot to be on a Sunday.
Musicians schedule to appear at this time are: Gospel Blues with Rae Gordon, The Rae Gordon Band; Bigger Yellow Taxi; Sonny Hess Band with Lisa Mann; Men in Blues featuring Robbie Laws, Doug Rowell and Big Monti.
There will also be a silent auction and donations for the auction are being accepted at The Trails End Saloon prior to the event.
SAVE THE DATE – Sunday, March 1st, Trails End Saloon along with many local musicians will be having a benefit for Alyssa Lilly. This will help the family pay expenses while they continue to battle the cancer Aly has been fighting. Full details later this week!!
Right now, we are looking for DONATIONS for the silent auction. Drop any donations off at Trails End Saloon, corner of 14th & Main Streets in downtown Oregon City. Feel free to share this post. Thank you!!
