We, the local music scene, would like to invite you to attend a benefit concert event to help raise money and support a friend of ours who has always been there for us: SANDY CATRON Here's the story thus far: Over the years our friend Sandy has worked hard to organize events, promote, and support many, many bands in the local SWVA music scene. In 2013 Sandy spent a lot of time in various area Hospitals fighting for her health. After suffering much, and taking on a mountain of debt...SHE SURVIVED. Sandy, like so many Americans, is now stuck with paying the price of the health care she received without any insurance to back her up. HELP US HELP SANDY! The local music scene now has an opportunity to pitch in and help someone who has done so for us.
