HART FundJACKSON, MS – Soul Blues singer Dorothy Moore organized a challenge match to raise money for the HART Fund of the Blues Foundation. The Central MS Blues Society hosted the month-long challenge match at its weekly Blue Monday jam in November and December at Hal & Mal’s in Jackson, Mississippi. In addition to Ms. Moore and the Central MS Blues Society, Thrivent Financial for Lutherans participated in the fund drive.

The HART Fund exists to help blues musicians in times of medical need, and on the final night of the fund drive, blues drummer Rick Lewis gave heartfelt testimony to the role the HART Fund played in his life during a recent medical situation. With Dorothy Moore’s pledge to match all donations from Central MS Blues Society members and friends, plus a generous donation of $1000 given by Thrivent Financial for Lutherans, Ms. Moore presented a check for $4136 to the Blues Foundation HART Fund!
