Tumor Humor: A Night of Laughter and Music Benefit
We want to extend a HUGE thank you to everyone who came out last Thursday for the Tumor Humor: A Night of Laughter and Music benefit. This benefit helped raise donations for two amazing women that are very special to the GenNow family. This year the news that Nick's (DJ Mad Mardigan) mother Linda's cancer had returned while also receiving news that his sister Steph was diagnosed as having a large brain tumor, was extremely devastating. This has been a trying time for the family both physically and emotionally, but also financially. So what did we do? We did what we do best and threw one hell of a party! The amount of people who came out to support this wonderful family was astounding!
Thank you to everyone who supported, promoted, donated, volunteered and loved on Linda Kahn & Steph Menefee. Donations have been counted and it looks like we raised $15,400 for the one-night affair!
Special Thanks and Generosity to: The Pourhouse for donating their venue and staff, GenerationNOW Entertainment and their team especially Ben Quam for being a tremendous host, comedy from the lovable Curt Folkestad, performance by
Kat Perkins & Eric Warner, blow your mind magic from the talented Brian Glad, and lovely music by Nathan Santos and his lovely bride Kiersty Santos.
