Annual benefit concert returns for its fourth year raising funds for families at Triangle-area children’s hospitals
RALEIGH: Music For Me Fine, the Me Fine Foundation’s annual benefit concert, returns in 2019 with a larger venue and the biggest act in the concert series’ four-year history. This year’s concert, presented by Southern First Bank, will be held at The Stockroom at 230 in downtown Raleigh, N.C. on Friday, April 26th and will be headlined by americana band New Reveille. Proceeds from the event will allow the Me Fine Foundation to provide hope for families in medical crisis being treated at Duke, UNC and WakeMed children’s hospitals.
New Reveille hails from Raleigh and was named by Rolling Stone as one the “10 New Country Artists You Need to Know” in 2018. Their 2018 album “The Keep” was a critical and commercial success and the group has played to sold out audiences.
Raleigh-based Tonk will open the show, a band that performs original music influenced by country and western artists of the late ’60s and ‘70s. Tonk has released two full-length albums and toured around the country. Empire Eats will once again provide the catering while Raleigh’s own Lonerider will be the event’s official beer sponsor.
Doors at The Stockroom open at 7:00pm with music slated to begin at 8:00pm. Limited numbers of early bird tickets start at $55 for individuals and $100 for pairs. For more information about Music for Me Fine, including how to purchase tickets, visit musicformefine.com.
“Throughout history, music has offered a space for connection, celebration, and support. Similarly, Music for Me Fine provides a place to gather, meet, and understand how pediatric illnesses create a ‘new norm’ for families in our community. Through this event, attendees become part of the Me Fine Foundation’s efforts to provide hope and support so that parents can focus their full attention on their sick child,” said Ben Steel, Music for Me Fine committee chair.
Last year, Me Fine distributed more than $85,000 in direct financial assistance to 286 unique families whose children were receiving care at UNC, Duke, and WakeMed Children’s Hospitals. Me Fine also provides emotional support resources for these families.
2019 Music For Me Fine Mainstage Sponsors include August Construction Solutions, Oakbridge Financial Group, and Empire Properties. Sponsorship opportunities are still available at musicformefine.org.
Me Fine Foundation is a nonprofit organization committed to ensuring families whose children face a devastating medical crisis are able to receive financial assistance, emotional support and other necessary resources to sustain the loss of income due to the dramatic change in lifestyle while undergoing treatment at Duke, UNC, or WakeMed Children’s Hospitals.
