All-star jam, too
The event will include an open mic “all-star jam” mix of local/regional musicians performing some of their favorite standards together. Delhi-area musicians interested in performing on Sunday’s benefit can email CleanGreenMusic@gmail.com or message “Clean Green Music” on Facebook. Live music will continue well into the evening.
Gerry and Lilly Breen suffered a devastating house fire on February 3. The beloved couple has been a cornerstone of the Delhi community for decades, and have given generously to help many people, in many ways, for a very long time. Sunday’s event at Delhi’s American Legion offers the community the opportunity to donate to help the Breens in a timely fashion. All monies received at Sunday’s event will go directly to Gerry and Lilly Breen.
