The CFH Group and the Woody Foundation are proud to announce, and are set to kick off the 2nd Annual Woodystock benefit concert! Woodystock is a grassroots free benefit concert for music and art lovers, and created to raise money for the recovery of people with spinal cord injuries. The name of the event and foundation is in honor of James “Woody” Beckham, who suffered his spinal cord injury while making a rugby tackle in January 2011.
Proceeds of Woodystock will benefit The Woody Foundation. The main initiative of the foundation is the Woody Pack backpacks. The Woody Pack is a free collection of assistive devices for those who have suffered a spinal cord injury, or are living with paralysis. The backpacks were put together to assist in regaining a sense of independence. The devices included within the Woody Packs helps improve everyday living with items that aid in simple tasks like eating or talking on the phone that are not otherwise covered by insurance.
Local artists and food vendors will gather at Woodystock in support of the non-profit organization. The free benefit concert is scheduled for Saturday, September 27, 2014 from 2 – 8:00 p.m. at Peacock Park in Coconut Grove. When the gates open, head over and hang out at Fritz and Franz Bierhaus Beer Gardens while you jam to DJ Brett Bailey. At 4 p.m., catch this year’s featured bands Fourth Dimension, The Boom Booms, Magical Beat, Robby Hunter Band, and Katarina Visnevska as they all hit the stage til 8 p.m. $20 donations are appreciated.
Come out, enjoy awesome live music, great food, and beautiful art all for an amazing cause!
