Starting to plan the next Phil's Jam for FSH.

Phil's Jam for FSH started out as an idea I had many years ago. My idea was to have some of the best Singer/Songwriters I know to get together and entertain and at the same time, raise money for research into the cause of fascioscapulohumeral dystrophy. The most common form of muscular dystrophy, and the form that I live with everyday.

I approached a few other organizations about helping me organize, but it was the FSH Society that made the most sense. Then last year my Sister-in-law read my blog and offered to help me make my dream a reality. Lori has worked as a fundraiser for years, so needless to say I was thrilled. After visiting countless restaurants, venues and facilities, Julie at the Wild Wing Cafe stepped up and said, "Sounds like fun!" That's how my first fundraising event was born.

Now that the first Phil's Jam for FSH is over and done, I have a ton of people to thank.

First of all, let me thank all the entertainers who came out and really put on a great show. Anna Johnson Band, Maureen Murphy, Joel Shewmake, AJ Engstrom, Destinee Quinn, Lee Akers and a special guest songwriter Bernie Nelson. I also want to thank my family, friends and anyone who donated time and/or money to the event.

With that out of the way, we are already planning the next. July 13, 2014 is the date for the next Phil's Jam for FSH. I will be posting much more about the event in the coming month. I am just now starting to line up the entertainment.

Keep the faith everyone. Remember how blessed you are!!

Quote of the year...

“Be not the judges of men, but love your brothers and sisters, and find ways to reach out to them in common goals and aspirations. Where there is love in common, the divisions of creed will melt away and reveal the true nature of man’s eternal destiny -- one of unity in purpose, to be perfect as the Father is perfect."
