Jam For John Fundraiser
Start: Sunday May 21, 2017 at 3:00pm CDT
End: Sunday May 21, 2017 at 7:00pm CDT
On March 21, 2017, local musician John Wheeler fell down some stairs and broke a bone in his back. After several days in the hospital, it was determined that he would need to wear an immobilizing back brace for the better part of two months and then undergo more months of physical therapy. John and his family have remained in good spirits, but this injury will bring extensive medical bills and the loss of many gigs for John - a bass player who is highly in demand.
Friends and musical colleagues of John and his family will gather on May 21st at Saloon On Calhoun in Brookfield to raise money for the Wheelers and show their support for this beloved musician as he continues to heal. Please mark the date on your calendar and plan to attend. There will be great music featuring many bands that John regularly plays with (including Kris Crow Keith Pulvermacher Joe Richter Michael Henszey and others.) Great raffle prizes, silent auction items and stellar food/beverages from (2017 WAMI award winner for Best Music Venue) Saloon on Calhoun (with BACON!) will be on tap as well.
A GOFUNDME campaign has also been set up online for anyone unable to attend but interested in donating to this event. 100% of all money raised is going to help offset medical bills for the Wheelers. https://www.gofundme.com/jam-for-john
