February, The Blues Foundation’s Month of HART (Handy Artists Relief Trust), is approaching, and the Blues Foundation is encouraging both individuals and their affiliated blues societies to hold a Day of HART Fundraiser! All proceeds from your event will go directly to the HART Fund, helping safeguard the health and well-being of deserving blues musician. Your support of the HART Fund helps provide direct support for acute, chronic, preventative medical and dental care, and even dignified burials for blues musicians and their families.
The foundation will list all supporting Month of Hart events on The Blues Foundation’s website page, with dates and links to each event. Each participating fundraiser will also be included in a special section of their upcoming newsletters to shine a light on the work you’re doing to partner with them.
For the affiliated blues society that raises the most funds during their Day of HART Fundraiser, The Blues Foundation will arrange for health screenings in their community for their musicians and society members, free of charge!
To register your Day of HART Fundraiser event, please contact Matt Uhler via email or (901) 527-2583, ext. 15. Once you register, you will receive a special Month of HART graphic to use in your promotions.
