Music For Eliana

Last Friday we had our 1st concert benefit for my 4 month old niece Eliana Sofia Georges who was diagnosed with brain cancer 3 weeks ago. She is currently at the LA Children's Hospital and will remain there for the next 7-8 months as she undergoes chemotherapy.

The turnout for the benefit was beyond amazing! We packed the house and had 4 local bands; they rocked the house. It was from 6-9:30 with a $10 minimum at the door, sold t-shirts for $20 and held a raffle with lots of legit prizes and guess how much we made? We gathered $11,250, we were all so amazed with the amount of money the community was so generous to donate towards my niece and her parents. We were all so humbled. Team Eliana is in full force and we are just getting started with benefits/fundraisers. Next one is TBA. Below I posted a link to her actual website where donations can be made as well as the bands that played and the prizes that were donated to us ( a lot we have not used and will use at the next benefit) and the other one is the link to the actual slideshow of the night done by Kacie Jean, she did a great job. Check them out and please feel free the pass on the links to whom ever you want.
