Dear Family and Friends,
I just confirmed the band “Muench” (www.muenchband.com) to play their blend of classic rock favorites at the 10th annual Backyard Baseball & Bar B Q fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s Association. One of the singers, Jim Muench, is a former neighbor and one of the kindest and most generous persons you’ll ever meet. And the band is truly terrific. I love going to their performances at various venues around Louisville.
Backyard Baseball & Bar B Q was started by sisters Cathy Nagy and Susan Oswald in honor of their lovely mother, who has Alzheimer’s. I took over the event last year and we will be holding the 10th annual event on Saturday, July 28, 2012, from 4 to 8 p.m. I haven’t confirmed the venue yet, but I will post updates as I have them.
This old-fashioned baseball tournament is a wonderful, family-friendly event that has been supported by the entire Louisville community and especially friends and families in the Springhurst area, as well as numerous corporate sponsors (including Norton Brownsboro Hospital and Mark’s Feed Store, as well as my firm, Guthrie/Mayes Public Relations).
I am expanding the event by adding the live music element. Basically, it’s an early evening event involving good old-fashioned baseball, a silent auction, numerous raffles, great Bar B Q, wonderful live music and the opportunity to contribute to an important cause. Please mark your calendar!
