Benefunk Photos

We had a tremendous turnout for Benefunk last night, it was a great time and I've got the headache and ringing ears to prove it. I'm sure Courtney couldn't have asked for better show: great people, great music and a steady flow of Miller Lite. I'm happy to have our first fundraiser under our belts, the whole Support For Courtney crew came up big in the event's organization and execution.

We're still getting the final tallies on head counts and donations, but each band held a steady crowd and everyone was generous whether buying merchandise, leaving money in the coin drop or offering to volunteer for upcoming fundraisers. Everyone was in good spirits, having Court on their mind and celebrating for a good cause. Several people in attendance were anxious to take leadership roles in future projects and it was an opportunity for me to put faces to the names of Court's expansive entourage.

Julie let Court listen in on her phone past her bedtime, the concert ran until 2pm. Thanks to everyone who packed Metronome on a Wednesday night. Videos will be up next.

Yeah Benefunkin' Youngsters (and not-so-youngsters)!

Pics look great. Fun was being had. And, um, now I know what you mean by clothing optional, I think. Was that a naked man on the stage?

Love to Court and family and a special thanks to Amber-
the grumpy old fart from this morning

WOW! The benefunk was a huge success, as has already been stated! I made the three hour drive up to Burlington from Greenefield yesterday to attend and what a great show of love and support for Court! I am constantly amazed at the amount of generousity and true affection everyone has and I can't even begin to count all the blessings I should begin to bestow!
It was really great to see all the friends of Court again from when I met them at the hospital. Thanks for stopping by and saying hi to me at the table! I love seeing and talking to you all again, even tho' I could barely hear anything.
The bands were all awsome and each one had their own following. We left at around 1:45 a.m. and it was still going strong.
Thanks to everyone who attended, and a special thanks to the SFC organizers. I also would like to thank Meg and Jay Ashman for their kindness in putting me up and cooking a delicious dinner and breakfast for me.
I can't wait for the next fundraiser, wherever, whenever, maybe next time Courtney will be able to attend too!
Again, thanks to all from Courtney and her family!
Much love, Julie/Mom
