Mother Nature probably had a bit of an impact on the turnout for the June 20th concert, Rockin’ the Recovery, held at Old Glory Ranch to benefit the Wimberley Memorial Weekend flood victims. Still, over $25,000 was raised and donated to My Neighbors Keepers who handles the distribution of funds. You can still help reach the original $35,000 goal as the account remains open for those who may have been unable to attend but still wish to donate to friends and neighbors in great need.

Sarah Jarosz headlined the event and brought the house to their feet with a special acapella rendition of ‘Down to the River ‘ joined by Shake Russell & Kim Miller. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house as those attending sang along with this soul felt selection. It was a time of healing. Jarosz, along with a tremendous lineup of volunteer musicians played their hearts out all evening while other volunteers provided a variety of food and beverage options for attendees to enjoy.
