F2TF Benefit Concert and Dinner

6 July 2012

I am so excited to announce the first F2TF Benefit Concert on Tuesday, August 7th.  We have some wonderful, talented performers who have generously donated their time and talents for this event!  I am constantly amazed at how giving people are…I always think about the quote by Dr. Seuss, “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better….it’s not.”  This community cares a whole ‘awful lot’, and I will spend the rest of my life trying to repay kindnesses shown to us, but am excited to be a part of making things ‘get better’.

The mayor of Layton has graciously donated the use of the Ed Kenley Amphitheater for the night and we have some AMAZING talents coming to entertain you!  It will be a night you will not want to miss!  I am convinced that this night is something Tyler would have wanted to happen.  All proceeds from this show will go directly to other cancer warriors!  Remember the ‘Giving Tree’ that sweet Dylan Shaw gave to Tyler?  This tree had been passed around to five kids in the last year.  With the proceeds of this concert, we hope to be able to brighten faces and lives of MANY more people with cancer.  I think about Tyler’s face as he would flip through the restaurant gift cards on the tree and decide which restaurant could satisfy his food craving that night, and it makes me smile.  He would Google menus of the places he had cards for and think about the food all day!  His tastebuds were so messed up from the chemotherapy that nothing that he used to love tasted good anymore.  What a gift those cards were!

I would love to see a crowd as large as the one that attended his fundraiser at this event!  It will be a night of music, laughter, and healing.  Please put this night on your calendars and plan to bring your friends and family.  All the details will be posted on this website and on the ‘Anything for a Friend’ website within a week.  We are just hammering out the final details.

And speaking of the final details, we will be having a meeting on Tuesday, July 10th at my home.  I would love to have anyone who is interested in helping make this event successful come to the meeting!  If you do not know where I live, email me at promconnection@msn.com and I will send you my address.  We still have need of volunteers to help promote the evening, pre-sell tickets, and help us get food donations.  We are still working on having a dinner there as well.  We will be selling F2TF tshirts, and F2TF window decals, but will not have an auction.  If you would like to help-we would love to have you!!!  Thank you again for helping us keep Tyler’s memory alive, and helping brighten lives of others who suffer as well.  Tyler would be proud of us!
