An old guy actually
won the First Annual New Beginnings–Next Step 5K…
(With desperate gasps, this geezer-in-black was
heard begging bystanders to tackle his
decades-younger challenger during the final mile of
May 5, 2016
Hope you guys are doing well!
First, THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Your generous support after my last email has
allowed us to reach the challenge grant I wrote to
you of back in March! Your support for NB-NS allows
me to continue my work to grow this effort to create
new paths and possibilities for my guys, and break
the cruel cycle of recidivism here in Delaware.
One of our guys – a 30 year-old man who has been out
of prison six months – has been working 100 hours a
week at his two jobs while also taking classes at a
local community college. He recently addressed the
question of change saying, “The truth is I changed
for the streets! Now, I’m finally taking off the
mask and just being myself… being the man I was
always meant to be! It feels good!”
I’ll be writing in the coming months to let you know
other upcoming fund-raisers for New Beginnings-Next
Step, including my annual NB-NS Benefit Concert
which will be held at World Café Live at the Queen
in Wilmington on August 5th:
. This show will also serve as the official release
concert for my new CD Mercy. It will include some
special guests and promises to be a lot of fun!
Please mark your calendars!
In the meantime there are some other gigs I wanted
to catch you up on–––
Tomorrow I’ll be singing at the Governor’s Prayer
Breakfast in Dover:
Then this Saturday I’ll be doing a fundraiser for
the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society:
On May 21st, I’ll be joining my dear friend Sonny in
celebrating the music of her brother Phil Ochs at
WAMC in Albany, NY. Then I’ll be doing a show at the
Library in Middleburgh, New York on May 22nd.
I’ll be closing out the month of May up in Allentown
at a great music and arts festival:
Information on these and other shows can be found on
my web site.
Thanks for all your continued support and energy!
‘Til our paths next cross…
